In point-multipoint systems the signal to interference plus noise ratio highly depends on the assignment of terminal stations (TS) to base stations (BS). The Broadband Fixed Wireless Access (BFWA) systems operate at high carrier frequencies. In this frequency range wave propagation is highly influenced by precipitation. Applying site diversity can mitigate rain attenuation effects. Present contribution provides a special site diversity method adopting genetic algorithm to adaptively optimize TS-BS assignments from point of view of the interference in BFWA service area. Rain events are generated with a Markov modeled simulation of the rain cell translations.
