Abstract

This paper provides a geometrically based model for single bounce multipath components in line-of-sight (LOS) microcell radiowave propagation channels. The model characterizes the excess delay, direction-of-arrival, and received power of multipath components and is particular useful for microcell and PCS systems with low transmitter and receiver antenna heights. The model includes analytical expressions for the probability density functions for all critical channel parameters and is thus useful for analytical purposes. The model is also useful for simulating both wideband and narrowband systems and in particular the model has been used extensively in a study of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) cellular radio systems employing adaptive antennas and switched beam systems at the base station [Lib95].
