Franktown Fire Propagation

Don't get too excited. The cell tower to the left and the microwave tower directly behind the fire station are not where we're welcome. We would be on the roof of the fire station itself. Still, this is an excellent location. FYI, the tower in front of the fire station (left) is the Douglas County Pop-Up tower. More photos of it are HERE along with some Field Day 2006 photos.

This propagation map is centered on the Franktown Fire Station located at the intersection of SR-86 and Flintwood Rd.

Here is the propagation model for 2 meters:

The center of the map is the Fire Station site.

The surface elevation at the tower is 2047 Meters.

The receiving station's antenna was placed 40 meters up in the air (arbitrarily by me).

The station was in the RECEIVE Mode

The mobile station transmitting from EVERYWHERE was using an omni antenna (3DBi) one meter in height above local terrain, transmitting 5 watts.

Pink indicates an S9 received signal at the water tower from each location.
