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) = ?
