This paper presents the results of outdoor field trial measurements in order to obtain the probability density functions and the autocorrelation functions of the fading parameters of the α-μ distribution. The ranges of possible practical values of the α and μ fading parameters are also obtained from the empirical data. In addition, the instantaneous magnitude variations of α and μ considering the mobile receiver displacement are estimated and discussed. The results provide important information about the practical usefulness of the α-μ fading model in mobile communication systems.
