High-frequency backscatter radio systems operate in the dyadic backscatter channel, a pinhole channel whose envelope probability density function and bit-error-rate performance are strongly affected by link envelope correlation – the envelope correlation between the forward and backscatter links of the dyadic backscatter channel. This paper shows that link envelope correlation is most detrimental for backscatter radio systems using co-located reader transmitter and receiver antennas and a single RF transponder antenna. It is shown that using separate reader antennas and multiple RF transponder antennas will decrease link envelope correlation effects and a near maximum bit-error-rate can be achieved with link envelope correlation less than 0.6.
