Experimental investigation of propagation of radio waves of VHF and microwave range inside buildings

V. B. Avdeyev, D. V. Avdeyeva, A. N. Katrusha, G. V. Makarov


The paper presents the data and analysis of full-scale measurements of the levels of relative attenuation of radio waves of VHF and microwave range in various premises of a multistory building depending on their location with respect to the room with the transmitting antenna. For the microwave range of radio waves the paper presents data of laboratory measurements of coefficients of wave penetration through bricks, asbestos cement slabs, and wooden boards.
