    In a recent series of experiments, the General Electric Corporate Research and Development Center demonstrated effective satellite-aided land mobile communications, analog and digital data relay, and automatic real-time vehicle position fixing. In one sequence of tests a station wagon was equipped with a specially designed antenna, a slightly modified commercial VHF transceiver, and a digital tone... View full abstract»

    Co-channel interference probabilities are calculated for mobile radio systems operating in a Rayleigh fading lognormal shadowing environment with inverse fourth power law dependence of area mean signal level on range. Interference levels are shown to be high even with generous reuse distances. The results are used to calculate spectrum utilization using reasonable but tentative estimates of protec...

    A generalization of an existing model for the fading signal at a mobile radio antenna has been made. The generalization lies in letting the scattering waves not necessarily be traveling horizontally. The effects of this generalization are investigated concerning probability density function (pdf), correlational properties, and power spectra of the phase and envelope. The pdf is not affected, but t... View full abstract»

    Error-rate performance of a digital FM with differential detection in the presence of both thermal Gaussian noise and cochannel interference is theoretically analyzed in the fast Rayleigh fading environment encountered in the typical UHF or microwave land mobile radio channels. The temporal correlation of the fades is included in the performance analysis. The error probability is presented by a si... View full abstract»

    A simulation program for the wide-band response of the urban multipath propagation channel has been developed. The program enables the generation of a sequence of "impulse responses" of the channel that would be observed by a moving vehicle communicating with a fixed station. The program incorporates empirical parameters covering four types of urban areas and three frequencies (in the 0.5-3- GHz r... View full abstract»
