ns-3 if77 module
The ns-3 if77 module provides an implementation of the ns3::PropagationLossModel which uses the If77 propagation model developed by G. D. Gierhart and M. E. Johnson. The If77 propagation model was developed in the 1970s in order to estimate the service coverage for radio systems. It can be used to calculate propagation loss for ground/air, air/air, ground/satellite, and air/satellite systems for frequencies in the 0.1Mhz to 20Ghz.
More details of the If77 propagation model including its uses and limitations can be found in the original If77 report
This documentation assumes that the reader is familiar with building and working with the ns-3 codebase.
