Up to now, the problem of electromagnetic field calculation in urban environment is topical. It is due to both intensive development of a mobile radio communication means and problems of electromagnetic compatibility of radioelectronic means provision. There are different approaches to the solution of this task — determined [1–6], statistical [7–9], and also complex [10]. However, accuracy of offered methods in a number of cases is insufficient.
