A new Matlab-Based, user-friendly virtual propagation tool (VPT) that can be used for multi-mixed path surface wave path loss calculations has been designed. Any multi-mixed-path surface wave propagation scenario may be specified by the user together with all the necessary input parameters, and path loss vs. range plots may be produced. The effects of multi-mixed paths, electrical parameters of each propagation section, as well as the frequency can be observed and extra path losses can be predicted. The VPT can be used both for design and training purposes.
