The planning of urban microwave communication systems must consider the harmful interference these systems cause to existing links, and vice versa. Site shielding is an interference reduction technique wherein a building is used deliberately to shield a radio terminal from interfering signal. The site-shielding factor (SSF) is, however, influenced by the arrival of interference on paths caused by reflection and scatter from nearby buildings. Prediction models are needed to estimate the effects arising from the scatter. The paper develops prediction models based on a plane reflector and discusses experimental measurements aimed at the validation of these models. The paper describes the results of the initial stage of a continuing investigation into building scatter aimed at the formulation of a prediction procedure for site shielding suitable for radio system planning and coordination
