Recent experiments have shown that Weibull fading

can be a practical distribution to model weak to high signal levels

at 800/900 MHz frequency spectrum in outdoor environments. In

indoor, path loss can be distributed by Weibull fading. Moreover,

exponentiated Weibull which is a special case of Weibull fading,

is adopted in free space optical communication systems recently.

Motivated by the wide usage of Weibull fading, we consider a

dual-hop relay aided network with amplify-and-forward relaying

and with the help of Monte Carlo simulations, we show the impact

of Weibull and Exponentiated Weibull fading channels in terms

of outage probability.
