Investigation of propagation through a frequency hopped channel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


The Letter describes measurements undertaken in the city of Bristol in order to investigate a frequency hopping (FH) channel. It is shown that although long term channel statistics exhibit negligible differences compared with fixed frequency operation, the instantaneous effects differ considerably. These differences could significantly influence the design of an FH system
