Abstract

This paper presents results of wide band path loss and delay spread measurements for two representative microcellular environments in the San Francisco Bay area in the 1900 MHz band. The results presented in this paper provide insight into the statistical distributions of measured path loss by showing the validity of a double regression model with a break point at a distance that has first Fresnel zone clearance for line-of-sight topographies. The variation of delay spread as a function of path loss is also investigated and a simple exponential over-bound model is developed. The path loss and delay spread models are then applied to communication system design allowing outage probabilities, based on path loss or delay spread, to be estimated for a given microcell radius.
