English Abstract

The characterization of channels having randomly time varying response is important for system performance analysis and design. In particular, such characterization is needed for the performance evaluation over many radio fading channels. Those channels exhibit a multipath nature of signal propagation causing destructive or constructive interference to the signal which leads at some instances to the loss of the signal completely. The main objective of this thesis is to find a suitable statistical model of some radio channels in the Southern Region of Saudi Arabia. When incorporated into the system design, these models should help in improving the performance of the system. The appropriate statistical models, the fade depth statistics, and the fading characteristics are found for some links in the region. Moreover, discussions regarding the physical interpretation of these results are presented.
