This paper presents a model for a wide-band fading channel for terrestrial mobile applications. The model is based on the results of measurements made in a heavily built-up urban environment using a 25 MHz signal centred at approximately 2.6 GHz. This paper presents measured impulse responses and details the parameter extraction process used to determine the characteristics of the channel. These parameters are used in the channel simulation package and the output of these simulations are compared to the original data.
