Thanks to the great Radiomobile software by VE2DBE I have been able to calculate a coverage map for the 2m band from some ham stations.
The coverage maps prooved to be extremely accurate. I described the exact antenna configuration of each station, while the target station is simulated as a car with a 1/4 wave antenna or so.
The resulting maps can be opened using Google Earth.
These are the results:
|iz2uuf.kmz||VHF coverage map from IZ2UUF QTH at JN45nk (50w FM)|
|SanDamiano50W.kmz||VHF coverage map from IZ2UUF alternative QTH at San Damiano al Colle (PV) (50w FM)|
|iw2mwc.kmz||VHF coverage map from IW2MWC QTH (50w FM)|
|iw2mvm.kmz||VHF coverage map from IW2MVM QTH (50w FM)|
|iw2ckm.kmz||VHF coverage map from IW2CKM QTH (50w FM)|
|fortunago.kmz||VHF coverage map from Fortunago, alternative IW2CKM QTH (50w FM)|
|RV_145.575_Val_Tanaro.kmz||Coverage of RV repeater IR1DD, 145.575, -600, 110.9, located at JN34XD|
