How do you interpret these?

A rough guide is that if you are a stationary high power (50W) mobile you should gain access at full quieting around “S2” at the extent of the Dark Blue coverage. Mobile coverage with reasonable copy with 50W would be the light blue band. Handheld access would begin in the Green coverage zone.

Home base stations should do much better as this has been predicted towards a vehicle with an antenna 1.5m above ground.
