Abstract: Measurements were performed in an urban-suburban environment with narrowband and wideband RF probes, which include millimeter-wave frequencies, in order to study propagation characteristics for street level paths. The primary objective of this report is to evaluate the performance of the RF channels in these environments for both line-of-sight and non–line-of-sight paths and to compare a model developed for line-of-sight paths to measurements taken in Denver, CO.

Keywords: RF; propagation; performance; millimeter wave; millimeter-wave frequencies; urban-suburban; model; line of sight (LOS)
