Title Wideband analysis of radiowave propagation through vegetation
Abstract The paper describes the analysis of wideband data that was measured as part of a project to develop a narrowband model to describe radiowave propagation through vegetation. The wideband analysis is necessary to study the mode of signal propagation for particular sites. Depending on the site geometry, the received signal may be composed of scattered, reflected or diffracted components. A combination of these components may result in an enhanced or reduced received signal level that can bias the narrowband model. The wideband analysis has been used to validate the measured data and assess the suitability of the measurement sites and geometries for inclusion in the database used to develop the narrowband attenuation model. Measurements at one site revealed that the presence of lampposts adjacent to the row of trees and road traffic had a major impact on the results obtained. The analysis performed on the wideband data has also offered a unique insight into radiowave propagation through vegetation and indicated some of the challenges that must be overcome.
