Wideband channel measurements at the 60 GHz frequency band in a reflective environment with different antenna heights are presented. The log-distance model of the normalized received power (NRP) is used to fit the measured data for both line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) cases. Also, the impact of the biconical antennas and the reflective environment on the channel properties is analyzed and explained. Results show that the most favorable NRP values are found in the case that the Tx and Rx antennas are at the same height. Also, in most cases, the scatter paths have more contributions on the total received power than the direct path. In addition, in the LOS case, the NRPs become less dependent on the Tx-Rx separation owing to the combined effect of the antenna and the reflective environment. The analysis of these results can be instructive for the deployment of a 60 GHz system in a reflective environment.
