And whats the refrence of Risa calculation CaAa while im using code design (TIA-222G)
Thank you.


RE: Risa tower input #help

Cs is the force coefficient for a discrete appurtenance.
Aa is the projected area for that discrete appurtenance.

Most antenna manufacturers have this info (at least the area) for their antennas). If not, there is some information in Annex C on how to calculate this. It's not a lot though.

Thanks for posting. It's been awhile since I pulled out my TIA code and it's nice to flex those muscles every once in a while.

If I were still with RISA, I'm sure I would have some training material on the subject. If you're still somewhat confused, let me know and I'll dig through some of my old files and see if I can find an example.

Thanks again
