The first gen Tranzeos were not so good.... At all.

The 902 serieis.. Much better. 900 can be voodoo though. I consider it and a 18 
db yagi the last chance for desperate customers.

I think this number is going to fluctuate a lot depending on a number of 

1. Frequencies available - we typically only use 5.8 or 2.3 (MMDS).  Not 
good for NLOS installations.  I'm looking into 900 for some areas to get 
around this problem..

2. Topography.  Big flat areas with mountains surrounding them will be 
easier to hit with high-up towers.  Crazy southwest desert outcroppings, 
  cinder cones, canyons, etc. make it difficult here.

3. Vegetation - palms vs pine trees

4. Area covered / density.  Chuck and Travis have HUGE areas.  I'm 
impressed with how much they do cover.

I do agree that "nogo" numbers are something we need to study more 
closely and try to improve upon.  Some great ideas here (google mapping 
nogos, etc.)

Doing coverage maps with Radio Mobile and Google Maps / Earth is not 
really hard.  We use those extensively.  I'll try to write something up
