Wireless network optimal performance is what communication engineers strive for. Empirical models are used to predict wireless link quality factors such as path loss and the received power in any given transmission environment with irregular terrain. This research work embraces Okumura-Hata model and is used to predict broadcast signal strength for Akure city, Ondo State, Nigeria. Measurement results of signal strength in UHF band taken in the three routes of Akure were compared with the predicted results using the empirical model (Okumura-Hata). A Matlab GUI based on the modified Okumura-Hata model was developed for simulation of results and prediction purposes.
