Wireless communication between a pair of nodes can suffer from self interference arising from multipath propagation reflecting off obstacles in the environment. In the event of a deep fade, caused by destructive interference, no signal power is seen at the receiver, and so communication fails. Multipath fading can be overcome by shifting the location of one node, or by switching the communication carrier frequency. The effects of such actions can be characterized by the coherence length… CONTINUE READING
