A procedure for a radio link design of cellular land mobile radio systems is discussed. The relation between the prescribed total outage and the necessary margins for thermal noise and cochannel interference is first derived. It is then shown that the respective margins can be calculated separately. A simple and useful procedure for determining transmitter power and co-channel reuse distance is presented in concrete flowchart form. Based on this procedure, an example of a radio link design for a digital mobile telephone system is shown.
