If you follow the ITU R 530-12 recomendations, you will see that there are differents steps for difficult path (multipath and / or fading).

The Kmin factor must be used for links over 18.2 Km (there is a curve for that).
Pathloss wil ltell you auotmaticaly which value to be used versus your link lenght).
Then you will have to setup the fresnel zone (30% or 60% depending on where you are on the earth).
