Temporal variations of iBurst wireless broadband signal at 1.9 GHz and of digital TV signal at 570 MHz measured
for one week on the fifth floor of a residential building in
an urban area and on the ground floor in a suburban area is
reported. While an apparent correlation between the signal
variation and the local wind speed was observed in the
suburban site, no such correlation was found in the urban
site. The investigated urban wireless broadband channels
show characteristics of LoS paths, with relatively smaller
temporal signal variation, and of multipath environment,
with a small scale local fading. Larger signal variation
was found with a shorter link (1.2 km) than with a longer
link (4.4 to 11.8 km) in the urban environment.
