ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Data capturing equipment are an expensive part of testing the coverage of a deployed or planned wireless service. This thesis presents the development of such a data capturing system that make use of 1800MHz GSM base stations as transmitters and a mobile phone connected to a laptop as receiver. The measurements taken, are then verified against know propagation models. Datavaslegging toerusting wat gebruik word om die dekking van draadlose stelsels te toets is baie duur en moeilik bekombaar. Hierdie tesis beskryf die ontwikkeling van so ’n datavaslegger wat baie goedkoper is en maklik gebruik kan word. Dit maak gebruik van ’n sellulêr foon en GPS gekoppel aan ’n skootrekenaar, wat die ontvanger is. Cell C basis staties word gebruik as die senders. Die data wat gemeet is word dan geverifieer deur gebruik te maak van bestaande radio frekwensie voortplanting modelle.
