Phones will receive signal from many pRRus. Should I average the antenna gain and all the path-loss (both line of sight and no-line of sight)? Or should I sum them all together?

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this asks for channel modeling of a pronouncedly non-amateur radio standard. $\endgroup$ – Marcus Müller Jun 3 '19 at 20:46

    $\begingroup$ (also, this question shows little understanding of the matter at hand. If you're doing ray tracing, than certainly not for the purpose of ignoring the majority of propagation phenomena, but to actually model them. So, neither averaging nor just summing is right: you're building a ray tracer, so you're tracing rays and adding them up including phase information, probably.) $\endgroup$ – Marcus Müller Jun 3 '19 at 20:48

    $\begingroup$ no. I explicitly said you should not. $\endgroup$ – Marcus Müller Jun 8 '19 at 2:13

    $\begingroup$ @MikeWaters absolutely. OP is asking about channel modeling for a very specific, very non-amateur use case. I can't find a way to generalize this to "general technology of radio". $\endgroup$ – Marcus Müller Jun 8 '19 at 18:51
