This paper focused on characterizing mobile radio propagation channel using empirically based pathloss model for suburban environments in Nigeria. In this paper, field data were collected from a CDMA20001x network which included measurement of received signal strength over several distances from the transmitting base station. The averages of the measured data were used in determining the pathloss exponent of the propagation environment. Also, an empirical based pathloss model was developed for the testbed environment using the field data and the pathloss exponent. The developed pathloss model and the computed pathloss exponent of 3.63 were used in characterizing the testbed environment in order to determine the efficiency and link quality of the network under consideration.
