A novel spatially modulated communication method, appropriate for wireless power transmission applications at 5.8GHz, is proposed using dual scatterers embedded with lumped elements. Analytical expression for the received wave in the spatial modulation is derived, and the characteristics are verified with simulation and measurement by varying the embedded capacitor. The maximum measured variation of the received voltage is more than 15dB and that of the phase is more than 270 degrees at 5.8GHz. The estimated amplitude modulation factor is more than 70%. Using the data obtained, we estimate the practical received waveforms modulated by the applied voltage to a varactor for the amplitude modulation scheme.
