Impulse response radiowave propagation measurements from an urban area of Denver, CO, are described. The basic transmission loss and delay spread are used to characterize the mobile communications environment. These metrics are quantified using path loss slope and delay spread statistics. By analyzing the results versus carrier frequency, the relative propagation impairments at 430, 1350, 2260, and 5750 MHz are compared. It was found that the path loss slope increased on average by 11 dB/dec and the median delay spread decreased from 0.7 to 0.3 μs over the decade of frequencies measured.
