Summary: 
This paper presents an analytical study and computer-based model of radio wave polarization propagating through a microcell. It covers the following topics: the influence of random orientation of a handset terminal on the performance of communication systems using either a linearly or circularly polarized base-station antenna; an analysis of the computer-based simulation of the power response on different polarizations in a street-canyon microcell.
