Abstract

In this work, we perform an analysis of a channel for the UHF wave propagation in the city street. The street is modeled as a planar multislit waveguide with screens and slits distributed by a Poisson law. Statistical propagation characteristics in such a waveguide can be expressed in terms of multiple ray fields approaching the observer along a direct ray and the rays reflected by the waveguide walls. The corresponding average field and intensity distributions can be transformed into the sums of modelike solutions using the Poisson summation formula. Numerical examples are presented and compared with the experimental data.
