In this paper an analysis is conducted to study the properties of indoor and outdoor wireless channel conditions over long time scales (several minutes). It shows that long term time dynamics exist in many different situations even when transmitters and receivers are stationary and the distance between them is only a few meters. We use software-defined radio (SDR) that implements radio communication functionalities in software. Transmissions have been achieved using the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP), with the signal processing and time synchronization occurring in the GNU Radio environment on the LINUX (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) platform. The work has been implemented in a typical school environment i.e., indoor conditions including a lab environment along with a hallway and outdoor conditions comprising a quadrangle environment. We used the benchmarking tool in the GNU Radio that defines and modifies modulation schemes, transmitter and receiver gains, operating frequencies, and other channel properties. Per-packet bit error rate is computed, visualized, and compared across multiple scenarios. We find a series of interesting time dynamics of the BER over several minutes that are not commonly studied in the literature
