SIGNAL FADING IN MOBILE COMMUNICATION:REVIEW
For six years of introduction of mobile communication in Nigeria though highly celebrated but has led to frustration on the part of customers/subscribers. These arise from myriads of poor interconnectivity to the signal fading. According to alberto et al., (2002) the ultimate goal of any communication (e.g. mobile) system is to provide error-free communication. This paper reviews different causes of signal fading experienced in mobile communication and how these problems can be combated in order to achieve reliable and effective information transfers. The reviews highlighted different methods in solving problems of fading in mobile communication. In this work, special focus on space diversity techniques was applied to combat fading in Nigeria. The exposition of this technique as well as different theories and calculations on path loss propagation and antenna spacing prediction were presented.
