This paper presents a precision method to calculate the electric field density of mountain area using digital terrain elevation data(DTED). Generally we calculate the electric field density of a point adding a direct field density and horizontal reflection field density between two points. In this paper, we consider a vertical reflection field density from vertical surface near the wave propagation line between transmitter and receiver. The vertical reflection electric field have different propagation path and polarization from a horizontal reflection field. And the total electric field density adding horizontal field density and vertical reflection value is more accurate than a direct path electrical field density or direct field density adding a horizontal reflection field density.
