A very simple but general scheme has been developed to calculate burst error occurrences due to cycle slip in clock recovery on frequency-selective Nakagami-Rice fading channels. The scheme, which we call the "Equivalent Transmission-Path Model," plays a role in connecting "wave propagation" with "digital transmission characteristics" in a general manner. First computer simulations assuming various types of delay profiles identify the "key parameters in Nakagami-Rice fading" that principally dominate the occurrence of cycle slips. Following this a simple method is developed to calculate the occurrence frequency of cycle slips utilizing the nature of the key parameters. Then, the accuracy of the scheme is confirmed through comparison between calculated values and simulation results. Finally, based on the scheme, calculated results on cycleslip occurrences are presented in line-of-sight fading environments.
