HERALD (HElp for RAdio Link Design) is a PC program for Windows that assists the radio engineer in the design of point-to-point (multi-hop) microwave links and networks, working in the frequency range from 0.4 to 58 GHz. HERALD 3.1 can be used by radio communications technicians and engineers as a practical tool for quick design of microwave links. HERALD can also be used as a training tool for graduate students or in short courses to show and test how propagation phenomena affect microwave link performance and how radio link engineering rules can be implemented. The HERALD design process is based on well-established design guidelines. Starting from basic hop configuration and link budget, reliable propagation models are applied to deal with the anomalous propagation events of rain, multipath, obstructions, and reflections. Close reference is made to recommendations of the ITU-R, the Radio branch of the International Telecommunications Union, formerly the CCIR. User-defined antenna and radio equipment libraries allow the use to select the items useful to configure the radio hop terminals. A number of project reports and diagrams can be produced, with text in English, Spanish, or Italian. The primary user reference with HERALD is the on-line context-sensitive Help. There is also a tutorial training course on Point to Point Radio Link Engineering in HTML format, which overviews background theory and can be accessed during HERALD use in a context-sensitive mode. Key Features: - Easy-to-use approach to radio link design with one-click access to background theory - Examples and exercises are available and fully explained. - High quality, comprehensive design documentation, printouts and diagrams produced in English, Spanish, and Italian. - This software covers the gap between simple spreadsheet computations and sophisticated (high cost) design suites. - Highly productive, interactive, user-friendly environment with extensive context-sensitive Help suppor

Herald 3.1 was developed by Luigi Moreno at Radio Engineering Services. Mr. Moreno is a Radio Communications consultant with more than 25 years of experience. A graduate of Politecnico di Torino, Italy, he was at CSELT (Telecom Italia Research Labs) from 1973-1982, then at GTE Telecomunicazioni from 1982-1985. His consultant assignments include manufacturing and operating companies (software developments for radio system simulation, analysis, and testing; design of radio links and networks; and training courses. He has been a delegate at many ITU-R meetings and a teacher. He is an IEEE Senior Member and serves as an IEEE Transactions Technical Reviewer. He is the author of some 30 journal and conference papers and holds two patents for mobile radio receivers.
