We analytically investigate coverage (determined by the uplink) under non-homogeneous and moving traffic load of third generation UMTS mobile networks. In particular, for different call assignment policies we investigate cell breathing and the movement of the coverage gap occurring between cells when a hot spot moves among the cells. These call assignment policies mainly differ in handling non feasible call configurations. To establish the maximally possible coverage, calls at the cell borders
