Abstract: Developing applications, especially real time ones mobile ad hoc network (MANET) requires a reasonable assurance of the likely performance of the network. MANET is realised by mobile nodes which communicate difficult task. Amongst many important properties of radio propagation model has to be selected carefully. This paper presents a hybrid propagation model of ad hoc network with multiple numbers of antennas. The hybrid technique ensures improved accuracy and practicality of the entire modelling environment. Currently study a modelled network consisting of ad hoc nodes with multiple antennas in different terrain and the propagation loss is calculated of the modelled network for the each ad hoc node. A loss less routing algorithm is implemented here and finally minimum loss route is selected for propagation in different terrain.
