The Rician factor is an important parameter in evaluating the outage probability and reuse distance of cellular systems. From the measurement of 1. 8 GHz radio propagation in outdoor urban microcells, it is found that the measured pdf of the Rician factor for low tier systems follows a lognormal distribution and the factor is independent on the propagation distance.
