The mobile radio channel can be simulated as a complex-valued random process with a time-varying variance. This paper describes an implementation of that process using a real-time Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technique. The simulator design permits the user to select the simulation parameters, including: vehicular speed, carrier frequency, ratio between the line-of-sight component and the multipath component, and the variance of average power. The design is based on variable sampling rate DSP techniques, and offers a novel solution to suppress the aliasing terms at intermediate stages where access to analog filters is cumbersome and costly.
