### Abstract

Propagation path loss models are going under intensive improvement to allow for more accurate predictions. Such improvements should include terrain areas that are not been exposed extensively in most of the earlier models. In this paper the main equation of Hata urban model is modified by a relation that includes the standard deviation of the measuring campaign route elevations (σ). This relation is consisting of two regression formulas, as a function of log(σ), modifying both the intercept point (DC value) and the slope of Hata urban model. Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) difference between this model and the measured filtered raw data path loss has overcome RMSE calculated for Hata suburban model, by up to 13 dB. Areas where data are collected would be assumed suburban by Hata model. Data were obtained from mobile service providers in Amman city and Madaba city, Jordan for the frequency band of 1800 MHz.
