Empirical justifications for the lognormal, Rayleigh and Suzuki (1977) probability density functions in multipath fading channels are examined by quantifying the rates of convergence of the central limit theorem (CLT) for the addition and multiplication of random variables. The accuracy of modeling the distribution of rays which experience multiple reflections/diffractions between transmitter and receiver as lognormal is quantified. In addition, it is shown that the vector sum of lognormal rays, such as in a narrow-band signal envelope, may best be approximated as being either Rayleigh, lognormal or Suzuki distributed depending on the fading channel conditions. These conditions are defined statistically
