This work presents propagation measurement results at 60 GHz in order to determine the characteristics of indoor radio channels between fixed terminals. Path loss measurements are reported for line-of-sight (LoS) and non-line-of-sight (NLoS) cases, fading statistics in a physically stationary environment are extracted and a detailed investigation of the people movement effect on the temporal fading envelope is performed. Models that presented to predict path loss provide excellent fitting with errors of 1.13 and 3.84 dB for LoS and NLoS topographies, respectively. The dynamic range of fading in a quiescent environment is 8.8 dB and increased to 35 dB when a person moves between the fixed terminals with the channel becoming extremely nonstationary. Temporal variations induced by the moving people depend on the speed, the number of individuals the body sizes and the environment. Slow fading is observed as well as a quasi-wide-sense stationary (QWSS) behavior of the fading, but up to 50 ms of time.
