In this paper, the implementation of COST 259 channel models in macrocells, using a stochastic approach in terms of tapped delay line (TDL) models is presented. The implementation of this wideband channel is very important for link level simulation in future wireless systems that exploit space-time processing techniques using multiple antenna elements. Major channel effects are discussed and incorporated into existing channel models. The temporal correlation is realised by using a power spectrum shaping filter whereas the spatial correlation is achieved by invoking a canonical Gaussian approach. Furthermore, antenna effects as well as array geometries can be taken into consideration for the development of compact antenna arrays at the user's terminal. The array implementation is focused at the mobile station (MS) point of view.
