In this paper, we report our analysis of path loss variation characteristics in the low millimeter wave band based on measurement results obtained by using 26.365GHz. We analyze the fading scale of the measurement results by applying a wavelet analysis method. It is clarified that a fading of unique scale between the scale of fast fading and shadowing can be seen in the low millimeter band. Finally, it is shown that the variation characteristics can be evaluated by taking reflection paths at building walls into account, in addition to the ground waves and LOS paths.
