Telecom RF,

Radius can be calculated based on propagation formula and link budget.

The inputs for a standard propagation formula are :

– height of BTS

– frequency band

– height of MS

– environment absorption

The link budget lets you find the Maximum Allowed Path Loss.

The propagation formula have to be reversed, so the ouput is the max distance BTS-MS, which would be your cell radius.
