In this article, infinite-series expressions for the second-order statistical measures of a macro-diversity structure operating over the Gamma shadowed -μ fading channels are provided. We have focused on MRC (maximal ratio combining) combining at each base station (micro-diversity), and selection combining (SC), based on output signal power values, between base stations (macro-diversity). Some numerical results of the system’s level crossing rate and average fading duration are presented, in… CONTINUE READING
