Distance to Horizon Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use the Earth bulge calculator to calculate the distance to horizon for your telecommunications problems.

Calculation of Distance to Horizon

Height of the Transmitter : in metres
Distance (d) : km

Formula:

(i) d = 3.57 × ?h
(ii) d = 1.23 × ?h

i. If the height is given in m. and distance in km.
ii. If the height is given in ft. and the distance in miles
where,
h is the height of the transmitter,
d is distance to horizon from a high altitude transmitter (i.e. line of sight).
