Cell-site diversity may prove an efficient fade mitigation technique to increase the availability of local multipoint distribution service systems, in this Letter, a recently suggested physical model for the prediction of cell-site diversity performance is properly modified to include stratified rain. The model-obtained is satisfactorily verified using radar derived data from UK and Canada. Simulated BEP results concerning LMDS diversity systems are also presented.
