Path loss models are useful planning tools that allow the designers of wireless communication networks to achieve optimal levels for the base station deployment and meeting the expected service level requirements. In this study various propagation models (COST 231 Walfisch-Ikegami W-I, Ericsson and Stanford University Interim SUI) are analyzed and compared with the measurements. The measured data were taken in urban (high density region) and rural (low density region) environments at the
