This work deals with propagation prediction for wireless communications in urban environments. Its purpose is to clearly distinguish the different field contributions collected by the receiving antenna through a series of wide-band frequency measurements and a time-domain (TD) analysis of the obtained results. The experimental data are then compared to the field predictions given by a ray-tracing electromagnetic wave propagation simulator. The application of this research lies in the modeling of the urban channel for wireless communication systems of the third generation such as UMTS and beyond.
