A vertically connected wireless link (VCWL) using the 60-GHz band has been proposed for reliable and economical transmission of various satellite media to individual building units. This paper describes a prototype of such a VCWL that employs a self-heterodyne scheme. The CNR performance of the prototype was evaluated in a real environment. The results showed that signals transmissions of the required quality could be delivered to the units of a five-story apartment. For the placement of multiple transmitters in close proximity, the prototype required 12 dB of CIR.
