Scaled models of simple two-dimensional (2-D) urban environments are considered in order to investigate propagation along a vertical plane. Specifically, path loss measurements are taken for different positions of the transmitting and receiving antennas at 25 GHz. Then measurement results are compared with theoretical predictions computed by a ray-tracing polygonal line simulator. The measurements indicate a very good agreement between the ray-tracing model and the experiments.
