27 . Depth of Fading: Ratio of mean square value and minimum value of fading signal. Fading Duration: Time for which signal is below given threshold. Fading Rate: Number of times signal envelope crosses middle value in positive going direction per unit time. Level Crossing Rate: Average number of times per second that the signal envelope crosses the level in positive going direction.
Thus. fD is the Doppler frequency. Doppler Effect: When a wave source and a receiver are moving towards each other. the frequency decreases. When they are opposing each other. λ is the wavelength of carrier. Doppler Shift in frequency: Moving speed v θ Signal 28 MS fD = v λ cosθ where v is the moving speed. When they are moving toward each other. the frequency of the received signal is f R = fC − f D where fC is the frequency of source carrier. . the frequency of the received signal is higher than the source. the frequency of the received signal will not be the same as the source.
This effect which spreads out the signal is called “Delay Spread”. Each path has different path length. When a signal propagates from a transmitter to a receiver. 29 . This forces signal to follow different paths. signal suffers one or more reflections. so the time of arrival for each path is different.

Two frequencies that are larger than coherence bandwidth fade independently. Concept useful in diversity reception Multiple copies of same message are sent using different frequencies.
