A coverage estimation based cellular system design in microcell structure under shadowing and multipath conditions is presented. The effect of the signal weakening conditions is examined by log-normal shadowing/Rayleigh fading distribution. By taking the application values of GSM operating systems and cellular phones, area reliability and cell radius are calculated and reliable RF coverage is investigated.
