Can someone who is a member of the IEEE download this paper and email it over for me please? (

My email is eric [at] narobo [dot] com

The article is old (published in 1970), but I will email it to you as soon as I get home!

Summary:Many new urban applications of radiolocation technology in both cooperative and noncooperative forms are anticipated in law enforcement and urban planning fields. Until recently, virtually no data were available regarding passive radiolocation of urban targets by conventional techniques such as direction finding. Recent radiolocation experiments performed at 165 kHz and 100 MHz were used to measure transmitter locations with increasing urbanization. Urban radiolocation errors in range and azimuth as a function of urbanization are given for the downtown area of San Antonio, Tex., showing increasing error with increasing urbanization. Procedures to improve urban radiolocation performance are suggested.

Interesting . . . but not sure how useful this is anymore since modern tech uses 700MHz to 2.4GHz. You'll have to find another paper that compares different frequencies to building penetration and see if you can relate the two papers.

Let us know what you find, I'm interested!
