The COST 210 Project was initiated as a result of the rapidly expanding use of the microwave spectrum for a wide range of radio services. This has resulted in an urgent need to conserve space in the spectrum by frequency-sharing wherever possible. Moreover, since radio propagation pays no heed to national boundaries, system planning must be based on internationally agreed prediction procedures, as formulated by the International Telecommunication Union. The problems of coordination (over an area) and point-to-point prediction for specific paths are especially important in Europe, with its wide range of propagation conditions and relatively large number of small, separate countries. Therefore, the primary objective of the project was to recommend improved procedures for the prediction of statistics of signal levels likely to cause co-channel interference, and thus to minimise the safe distance between radio systems in Europe.
