This paper experimentally studies and models the angular-delay power spectrum density at the mobile station based on the site-specific measurement in a macrocell in urban area of Tokyo. The authors first show the azimuth power spectral density at the mobile station. It is decomposed into the "classes" which represent specific contributions within limited azimuth range, as well as the residual. The site-specific propagation mechanism of the classes are next discussed. Finally, the angular-delay PSD models of both classes and residual are proposed and verified. The analysis and modeling in this paper are antenna independent with the full polarimetric information. Consequently, the results are useful to evaluate the performance of arbitrary array antennas with mixed polarization. Due to the rare number of antenna-independent and full-polarimetric measurements, the significant contribution of the angular-delay PSD channel model can be expected.
