Independent shadowing losses are often assumed for evaluating the link capacity of direct sequence code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) cellular system. However, shadowing losses may be partially correlated since the obstacles surrounding a mobile station block similarly the desired signal and the interfering signals. In this letter, we discuss how the shadowing correlation impacts the reverse link capacity of a power-controlled DS-CDMA cellular system, by numerical analysis.
