Q 32. Is the height of my tower adequate?

Ans : "Required Minimum Tower Height" in a communication system is determined by Radio path survey between 2 points . It is possible that shifting the location of tower by a small distance (i.e.100 to 200 meters)'Required Minimum Tower Height' is reduced to as much as half of the earlier value. Also, the LOS path is not a perfect straight line on available maps. Hence it is worthwhile and fruitful to invest time and money to determine the 'Required Minimum Tower Height' for a location. POLY-QUAL determines 'Required Minimum Tower Height' by surveys considering various factors like Fresnel Zones Earth curvature with modern tools like GPS, Theodolites etc.
