A Fast-Fading Mobile Channel Measurement System

Robert T. Johnk; Chriss A. Hammerschmidt; Mark A. McFarland; John J. Lemmon

Abstract: We describe a prototype propagation measurement system based on a combination of a spectrum analyzer and a vector signal analyzer. The system is designed to measure the characteristics of a narrowband mobile radio channel. We present results from a commercially-available fading simulator and fixed-to-mobile measurements performed in Boulder, Colorado. The results obtained look promising and the system demonstrates excellent measurement fidelity.
