    Abstract

    Based on the consideration of a set of space waves, a model for the E field along the path of a mobile receiver is presented. Antenna array and aperture theory are applied to the model and used to derive equations for the total received field that enable a clear understanding of fading over various distances along the path. It is shown that lower frequency fades, which have often heretofore been attributed to shadowing by obstructions, can result from multipath interference. This is confirmed via Fourier analysis of data measured on line-of -sight microcellular-type radio channels at 1.8 Hz. To preserve fidelity in results, this analysis is conducted within short path lengths over which the set of space waves remains unchanged. These are herein identified for the first time as Deterministic Lengths.
