(communications)
Fading that is different at different frequencies in a frequency band occupied by a modulated wave, causing distortion that varies in nature from instant to instant.

Its current version allows frequency-selective fading channel, and (c) spatially correlated frequency-selective fading channel.
In order to demonstrate the antenna averaging effect on the phase noises of independent oscillators, we simulate an [N.sub.R] x 1 receive beamforming OFDM system with different numbers of receive antennas and a 4x [N.sub.T] SVD-based spatial multiplexing OFDM system with different numbers of transmit antennas at 15-dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in frequency-selective fading channels.
We showed that, in frequency-selective fading channels, the PNs of common oscillators at the transmitter and at the receiver have the same influence on (single-stream) beamforming OFDM systems, yet different influences on spatial multiplexing OFDM systems.

On the other hand, in frequency-selective fading, smart antenna systems must perform both temporal and spatial equalization to individually or jointly suppress ISI as well as the co-channel interference.
Applying the FF filters based on MMSE criterion, which compensates for the frequency-selective fading channel's variations of amplitude and phase, we obtain the elementary time-domain sequence.
In terms of time dispersion, a transmit signal may undergo fading over a frequency domain either in a selective or nonselective manner, which is referred to as frequency-selective fading or frequency-nonselective fading, respectively.
The SUI-3 wireless channel model [17] is chosen as the frequency-selective fading channel model.

The spacing of each fade is also a function of the carrier frequency (hence the term frequency-selective fading).
Mode E is designed to be robust to time and the frequency-selective fading channel [1].
