This document is not a comprehensive introduction or a reference manual. The free space path loss is used to predict the strength of a rf signal at a particular distance. The calculator below is a path loss calculator because it includes the antenna gains.

The minimum value of l is zero, indicating no path loss. For our purposes a matrix can be thought of as an array, in fact, that is how it is stored. It started out as a matrix programming language where linear algebra. This is a theoretical value, as in the real world, there are many obstacles, reflections and losses which need to be accounted for when estimating the signal at a location. Linear path loss suppose st of power p t is transmitted through a given channel the received signal rt of power p r is averaged over any random variations due to shadowing. This matlab tutorial is based on version 6x from 2001. Freespace object, you specify not only the signal to propagate, but also the location and velocity of the signal origin and destination you can use fspl to determine the free space path loss, in decibels, for a given distance and wavelength free space path loss in db.
