Free Space Loss Calculation
The formula for calculating free space loss is:
20 * Log10 (frequency in MHz) + 20 * Log10 (Distance in Miles) + 36.6
Free Space Loss is the loss that a radio signal experiences when traveling through free space. This calculation is important when determining the amount of power you will need to complete your 2.4GHz WiFi Point to Point Link. It is also very important for other frequencies as well.
