The propagation factors measured for several propagation paths above the water surface are compared with the results of calculations for two modern coverage prediction systems. In calculations, numerical values of the parameters characterizing the current state of the environment observed at moments of signal measurements are used as initial data. It is demonstrated that both systems provide good accuracy for the line-of-sight and twilight zones, but the prediction accuracy is unsatisfactory for the scatter propagation.
