To realize high-speed data communication in a cellular system, the characteristics of mobile radio propagation paths (MRPP) and a robust error control scheme for poor circuit quality are studied. MRPP are analyzed by computer simulation, and an analysis method is described that uses a Markov model for burst errors generated by the simulation. By simulating the locus of moving vehicles, the relationship between the carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR), the fading frequency of a moving vehicle, and the three-states Markov model is obtained. An adaptive error control scheme (AECS) is developed as an effective high-speed data communication scheme in an analog cellular system. The effectiveness of the AECS is analyzed by simulating its application in a subcarrier transmission system with a 4800 b/s data transmission rate, using the three-states Markov model. An assessment using actual field data in the US and the UK is also performed; the analysis method is verified and the characteristics of the AECS are evaluated using the data.
