Multipath fading could be included as a subset of this article.

Please add here direct links to articles on: 1) Rayleigh fading distribution statistics (equation + diagram); 2) Rice; 3) Ricean fading distribution statistics (equation + diagram) Thanks, RS

And all this time I thought Rician fading referred to a certain actress's career... Angr/talk 15:01, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Would underwater acoustic multipathing fit into this subject heading or is it only atmospheric signal? Subsea (talk) 07:27, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm not in acq with underwater transmission, but I think that this applies whenever there is a wave moving in a medium, and it is conceived as a ray. --Cantalamessa (talk) 12:17, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Multipath in wired media[edit]

Although many people think that Multipath propagation only happens in wireless, it's also a very common problem in wired media like power lines (specially when operating at MHz frequencies). I added a section about that, but the rest of the article (which I didn't want to change) still gives the impression that this only applies to wireless communications.

Info Needed[edit]

How common multipath is, how common horizontal vs vertical multipath is, and whether multipath is taken into account normally when calculating pathloss. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:12, 14 July 2009 (UTC)


The multipath interference article seems to cover the same subject area as this page (multipath propagation), but is much less complete - and therefore I'm proposing a merger of multipath interference into multipath propagation. What do you reckon? --catslash (talk) 00:03, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. Jim.henderson (talk) 21:09, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
I do not believe that it should be merge. Interference and propogation are different terms.--Mohitkr05 (talk) 17:56, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
