Enter the height of the radio tower (m) into the Radio Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Radio Distance.

## Radio Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Radio Distance.

RD = 3.569*SQRT(H)

• Where RD is the Radio Distance (km)
• H is the height of the radio tower (m)

## How to Calculate Radio Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Radio Distance.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the height of the radio tower (m).
• The height of the radio tower (m) is given as: 150.
2. Finally, calculate the Radio Distance using the equation above:

RD = 3.569*SQRT(H)

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

RD = 3.569*SQRT(150) = 43.71 (km)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

height of the radio tower (m) = 75

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

RD = 3.569*SQRT(H) = ?
