Abstract: This study investigates the propagation path loss characteristics of GSM signals in Benin City, Nigeria. Propagation path loss characteristics of Benin City were investigated using fifteen different environments which reflect an exhaustive measurement and good representation of the City. Consequently power received (Pri) was measured from a distance (d) from the base station for various environments investigated. The data was analyzed to determine the Propagation path exponent and path loss characteristics. The path loss of Benin City ranges from 2.8 to 3.7 with average determined to be 3.8.
