Accurate characterization of spatial multipath channels at millimeter wave bands has gained significant interest both in industry and academia. A channel measurement was conducted at three different frequency bands, i.e., 2−4, 14−16, and 28−30 GHz in a line-of-sight (LOS) and an obstructed-LOS (O-LOS) scenarios in an empty room environment. A vector network analyzer connected to a virtual uniform circular array and to a rotational directional horn antenna was used in the measurements, respectively. Angle-of-arrivals and delay-of-arrivals of the multipath components were obtained from the measurements for the three frequency bands. Room electromagnetic properties for the three different frequencies at different propagation scenarios were investigated as well.
