Exact closed-form expressions for the level crossing rate (LCR) and the average duration of fades (ADF) of α- fading channels are presented. Confirmation of the derived analytical formulations is attained by reducing the general results to some widely known cases (Nakagami-m, Rice, and Weibull). Extra validation is performed by comparison with measurement data and by means of a sample of numerical results obtained by the Monte Carlo simulation.
