Clear-Air Analysis of Fade Exceedance Probability Statistic for Microwave Line-of-Sight Link in South Africa

P.K. Odedina and T.J. Afullo (S. Africa)


Fade depth, fade exceedance probability statistic.


This paper presents analysis of fade exceedance probability statistics for a microwave line of sight link set up between two campuses of University of Kwazulu Natal in Durban, South Africa. The measurement over the link spans a period of eight months. The analyses are done in three stages, first is daily analysis, next monthly analysis and lastly total analysis. Seven different fade depth levels were analysed in each of the above mention stages. The results presented after these analysis will be very useful for radio propagation designers in this region.
