Second order statistics of the signal in Ricean-lognormal fading channel with selection combining

Mitić Aleksandra M., Stefanović Mihajlo Č.

Level crossing rate and average fade duration of signal envelope of selection diversity are numerically determined. Statistical characterization in fading and shadowing mobile radio communication environment are very useful and in this paper that is computed for Ricean fading channels with lognormal shadowing. The results are presented for independent identically distributed diversity branches when selection combining technique is used.

Keywords: level crossing rate, average fade duration, shadowed Rice fading channel, selection combining
