Optical fibers have almost unlimited capacity, but cannot address the users desire for mobility and ubiquitous access. The synergy of these two worlds can be seen in the direction of the Radio-over-Fiber. This paper presents to the reader an introduction for the mobile radio channel - basic physical phenomena, their implications on the transmitted signal, and how the radio channels are modeled. Special attention is given to the small-scale effects, such as multipath, and Rayleigh and Rice distributions of received signal, as these dominate in the case of indoor communication systems.
