# Young model

{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Unreferenced |date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Message box|ambox}} }} Young model is a radio propagation model that was built on the data collected on New York City. It typically models the behaviour of cellular communication systems in large cities.

## Applicable to/under conditions

This model is ideal for modeling the behaviour of cellular communications in large cities with tall structures.

## Coverage

Frequency: 150 MHz to 3700 MHz

## History

Young model was built on the data of 1952 in New York City.

## Mathematical formulation

The mathematical formulation for Young model is:

Where,

L = path loss. Unit: decibel (dB)
GB = gain of base transmitter. Unit: decibel (dB)
GM = gain of mobile transmitter. Unit: decibel (dB)
hB = height of base station antenna. Unit: meter (m)
hM = height of mobile station antenna. Unit: meter (m)
d = link distance. Unit: kilometer (km)
${\displaystyle \beta }$ = clutter factor
