Abstract

The signal received by a mobile radio receiver can exhibit random amplitude fluctuations as a result of reflections and scattering of the original transmitted signal by buildings and vehicles. To reduce the fading a technique is described which uses ultra fast automatic gain control circuits. Field trials with a VHF SSB system have been performed at 86 MHz and some limited trials performed with a full carrier AM system at 456 MHz. Experimental results from the laboratory and field trials are discussed
