Summary: 
Outage probability evaluation for a new category of wireless access systems is discussed. Wireless access systems dealt with in this paper are links which connect a portable terminal to a base station through a line-of-sight path. It is also assumed that the terminal equipment is operated in a still atate during actual communications. This mobility restriction enables the wireless access to have a capacity as high as the Mbit-order with high quality performance. Multipath fading observed in such a system may have more moderate variations than Rayleigh distribution. This paper tentatively designates the above wireless access as relocatable systems, and attempts to analyze their error performance, approximating the fading characteristics with Gamma-distribution. Also dynamic relations between bit error rate (BER) and signal-to-noise ratio are calculated under Gamma-distribution fading. Based on the analyses prediction methods for outage probability of typical QPSK systems are given, and thus it is established to design the performance aspect of relocatable systems with different features from both fixed and mobile systems.
