The millimeter-wave frequency band is emerging as an interesting choice for high data-rate indoor wireless communications. The features of large bandwidth, small antenna size and high indoor path loss to isolate separate channels offer many advantages. This paper reports on the experimental setup, the experimental results, and statistical characteristics of line-of-sight (LOS) indoor wireless propagation channels using a low-profile directional antenna for both transmit and receive functions at 30 GHz. The path loss and small-scale fading characteristics are explored. The measured results are used to determine the coefficients used in Rician and Nakagami distribution models at 30 GHz.
