The paper deals with thestudy based on the comparative analysis of radio propagation models for mobile cellular wireless communication of global system for mobile at frequencies 0.9 GHz and 1.8 GHz, respectively. Thepath loss propagation models arevitaltool for planning the wireless network as well as designed to predict path loss in a meticulous environment.Variouspropagation models: Free-space model, CCIR (ITU-R) model, Hata model, Ericson model, and Stanford University Interim (SUI) model have been studied and examinedthrough analytically from the base station (BS) to mobile station (MS) and vice versa followed by respective simulation performance evaluation by using Matlab simulator. The observed data is collected at the operating frequency of 0.9 GHz from variousenvironments (high density region and low density region) using the spectrum analyzer and path loss comparisonis shownfor different model.
