The reduction of multipath fading on line-of-sight microwave radio-relay links by dual space diversity is quantitatively described. One of the main results is a fade reduction factorFthat specifies the improvement provided by space diversity as a function of the vertical separation of the receiving antennas, frequency, path length, and the relative size of the antennas in the diversity pair. The results are based on a theoretical analysis of recent experimental data.
