This article presents and analyzes fading measurements of optical signal in a terrestrial free space optical communication link using a commercial system. Unlike previous work, the link distance is very short (around 91 meters). Still, it was possible to observe significant scintillation index variations over a day. This behaviour agrees with previous results obtained in the literature for much longer links.
