The propagation characteristics between two geographically fixed sites will change over time; for no apparent reason. Digital eye patterns will open and close; bit-error rates will vary; frequency nulls will appear and disappear. We can often observe daily, monthly, and yearly variations in the propagation characteristics of a channel. In this chapter, we'll explain some of the causes of these effects and offer some solutions.
