Results of wideband path loss and delay spread measurements using high gain, high and low antenna heights with pattern tilting are presented. The measurements were done in the frequency range 905-915 MHz, at two existing cellular mobile radio (CMR) sites. Also presented are potential approaches for analyzing data from high gain antennas. It is shown that, to a large extent, existing models can be used to predict path loss for high gain antennas with downtilting. The results further support the notion that high sites together with high gain antennas and suitably selected pattern tilting can result in a significant reduction in path loss and delay spread, as well as reduction in power transmitted from the cell site and reduction in system interference
