Abstract

Radio propagation environment with scatterers restricted to the far-zone is analyzed to demonstrate how signal fading is affected by the complexity of the environment. To simulate signal fading, an approximate model based on infinite perfectly conducting (PEC) cylindrical scatterers is used and simulated. Depending on the scattering environment, the simulated data match the classical models of Extreme value, Gamma, Rayleigh, and Generalized Gamma.
