In this contribution, a software multipath fading simulation package (previously applied to the statistical analysis of the fading statistics of single transmitter schemes for three very different mobile radio environments) is used to analyze the performance of a quasi-synchronous, multitransmitter, amplitude modulated sideband diversity area coverage system. By conducting field trials in an area known to obey Rayleigh fading statistics, it has been possible to compare the simulated statistical results to those obtained theoretically and experimentally, and to show that good agreement exists. The fading simulator is capable of being extended to other types of multitransmitter radio scheme employing different forms of modulation.
