V-Soft Communications is showcasing its AM-Pro 2, an upgrade to the company’s AM-Pro allocation and coverage mapping program.
This version supports “grid style” calculation of groundwave and skywave field strengths and interference, similar to V-Soft’s Probe propagation prediction program.
Daytime allocation studies are enhanced by the ability to remove overlap area over water and accommodation for the existing facility. Night allocation studies now support full “clipping” studies.
Features of AM-Pro 2 include a Cancel button for initial night and day allocation studies that lets the user go back to the “wizard” and change a setting if a mistake was made; improved equivalent distance methodology for limit and point location field strength calculation; a database searching system where a table of “matches” is reported; and the ability to edit the AM database and/or create custom databases.
Automatic calculation of critical hour radiation limits, a revamped pattern editor and the ability to plot the existing facility station contours in daytime allocation studies round out the highlights.
