RF propagation describes the behavior of electromagnetic radiation from a point of transmission as it travels through the surrounding environment. The analysis of RF propagation is essential in understanding how electromagnetic waves incur losses from a transmitter to a receiver in different scenarios.

Site Viewer basics, basemaps, and troubleshooting.
When you start Site Viewer up on showing a txsite or rxsite object, a check is made to make sure that you have an internet connection to retrieve the default basemap and terrain data.
To download MATLAB® basemaps:In addition, Site Viewer also supports three external basemaps that you can select from the basemap picker.
