Abstract
The digital transmission capacity of randomly fading multipath radio channels is limited to that for which the bandwidth of transmission is much less than the coherence bandwidth (B sub c) of the channel. It is therefore important for system design purposes to determine B sub c in propagation environments where the use of digital radio systems is planned. The report details experiments that were conducted under conditions similar to those which would be typical on 800/900 MHz band satellite-mobile channels in rural environments. The impulse response functions of measured channels were estimated by operating a pseudo-noise channel probe from a 65 m tower through deciduous trees to a receiver at close range. Measurement results include: channel impulse response estimates, angle of arrival analyses, envelope fading statistics, and double-sided frequency correlation plots. TRUNCATED
