Short-term propagation measurements and modeling for terrestrial line-of-sight links
This paper presents a propagation prediction technique to predict propagation mechanisms for fixed terrestrial line-of-sight (LOS) radio links, especially proposed for rural environments. We report the results of a short-term propagation measurement campaign carried out in the area of Ankara, Turkey. The field measurements were performed at the frequency of 2.536 GHz for a period of three months in summer 2015. It is observed that the difference between measurement data and predicted mean received power is smaller than the standard deviation value provided by Recommendation ITU-R P. 1546.
