    The paper presents the results of signal strength measurements at 1800 MHz in four office buildings in The Hague, illuminated by an outdoor base station with an antenna above the rooftop. The objectives of these experiments are to study the behavior of the received signal strength at different floors of a building and to determine the main characteristics concerning cell coverage, namely, signal attenuation and variation within these buildings. It is shown that large fluctuations occur between average signal levels in line-of-sight (LOS) and non-LOS areas of multifloor buildings.
