The fading of an on-body transmission channel at 2.45 GHz is investigated. For the first time a large amount of data has been gathered in practical environments, for realistic activities, and has been subject to statistical analysis. It is clear that significant variations of the path gain and fading can occur due to the movements of body. Extensive statistical analysis has shown that fading in on-body channels is a non stationary process. This letter presents results of a number of significant statistical parameters, including level crossing rate and average fade duration.
