Wireless Underground Sensor Networks (WUSN) are a natural extension of the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) phenomenon to the underground environment. In this paper, experimental measurements are presented at the frequency of 433 MHz, which show a good agreement with the theoretical studies. Experiments are run to examine the received signal strength and the packet error rate for aboveground-to-underground and underground-to aboveground communication links. The results reveal that the effects of burial depth, inter-node distance and volumetric water content of the soil on the signal strength and packet error rate.
