    Abstract

    Wideband radiowave propagation measurements in the DECT frequency band are performed in a suburban environment. The aim is to analyse the fixed radio link between the subscriber's premises and the local exchange access unit for different heights and pointing directions of the antenna at the subscriber side. Measured complex impulse responses are used to calculate the path loss and rms time delay spread of this wireless localloop communication channel. For both line-of-sight (LOS) and non line-of-sight (NLOS) links, the Iowest path Ioss and rms time delay spread are found when the antenna points to the access unit at the local exchange side. On the average, no significant decrease in path Ioss and rms time delay spread is observed when the height of subscriber antennae is increased from 2m to 4m above the ground. However for LOS links and NLOS links which are affected by attenuation due to vegetation, the path Ioss can be minimized by a proper choice of the antenna height.
