## How to Calculate Line of Sight Transmission - Definition, Formula and Example

##### Definition:

The method of transmitting anything from one position to another is known as 'Transmission'. Line of sight transmission is an imaginary line where the transmitting and receiving antennae can be viewed at once.

##### Formula: ##### Example:

Let us consider that height of the antenna first antenna as 50 meter, height of the second antenna is 60 meter. How to find the line of sight transmission distance between two antennas.

##### Given,

Height of antenna (1) = 50m Height of antenna (2) = 60m

Substitute the values using above formula.

###### Step 1:

dLOS = √ ((2 * 50 * 6.38 * 106 )+ 50 * 50 ) + √ ((2 * 60 * 6.38 * 106 )+ 60 * 60 )

dLOS = √638002500 + √765603600

###### Step 2:

dLOS = 25258.71 + 27669.54

###### Step 3:

dLOS = 52928.25 Line of slight transmission distance is '52928.25 meters'.
