Abstract: The ability to optimize a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) system is dependent on the initial system configuration at the deployment stage and the choice of propagation model. The propagation model is an important function in cellular radio system design. For better network coverage, the propagation parameters that influence the received signal strength must therefore be optimised and in turn verified by in-situ measurements after deployment. In this paper, we report on drive-tests to measure the received power from a pilot in a CDMA2000 mobile cellular network in Greater Accra, Ghana. By using the least-square algorithm to fit the Hata-Okumura prediction, the resulting model was found to agree well with the measured data.
