In this work, the empirical method was adopted because it involves the measurement of large data, with the help of software called RF signal tracker which was installed in a mobile phone called Samsung galaxy pocket, this software gave us the distance to site (base station) and the signal strength level of the network provider at a particular distance. From my data, it was observed that the calculation of path loss with log – distance model which is deterministic is not as accurate as the empirical model (generated model), the generated model gave a better and more accurate result than the existing ones, and that the path loss exponents of the tested locations was fully known. Model was developed to calculate the power received of GSM signal in Ekpoma and the model was named “Generated model”.
