Radiowave propagation model is an empirical mathematical formulation for characterization of radiowave propagation as a function of frequency, distance and other conditions. Much like 4G or 3G before it, the radio waves used in 5G are low frequency and non-ionizing radiation. These are on the opposite end of the electromagnetic spectrum to ionizing radiation sources like X-rays, gamma rays, and ultraviolet rays.This study explains the various attenuating factors prevalent in radiowave propagation. It highlights the various types of radiowave propagation; its classification based on their propagation paths; its layers in the atmosphere, its frequency bands and propagation mechanism. The study also entails the various radiowave propagation models and their application in VHF and UHF band.
