Measurement results are presented for the effects of people moving near and across short-range indoor propagation links at 2.45 GHz (ISM band). Excess loss due to scattering and blockage by human bodies in the vicinity of one terminal were measured for different radio links in an office environment. Statistics on fades due to human body motion are given. Polarization coupling (depolarization) for various radio links was measured, and correlation of polarization components is discussed as a basis for using polarization diversity reception in short-range indoor systems.
