This paper presents the results of narrow-band and wide-band propagation measurements carried out at 2.0 GHz in an indoor environment using a radiated-mode leaky feeder as the transmitting antenna. The narrow-band measurements were devised to measure attenuation of radio signals and the wide-band techniques to measure multipath impulse responses and their associated root mean square (rms) delay spread. Analysis of the narrow-band data files shows that the received signal levels in the direction along the feeder generally decay exponentially due to the feeder-specific attenuation. The received signal levels in the direction radial to the feeder decrease slowly, and the distance–power law exponent is found to be smaller than one. The slow and fast variations of the received signal levels are also examined. The results reveal that the slow variations basically follow the log-normal distribution, while the fast variations fit the Rayleigh distribution in the direction parallel to the feeder and the Rician distribution in the direction radial to the feeder, respectively. Analysis of the wide-band data files reveals that the maximum value of the rms delay spread is 60.6 ns and the rms delay spread values are less than 42 ns 50% of the time. One therefore can conclude that the indoor channel excited by the radiated-mode leaky feeder has a broad coherent bandwidth and can support the data rate up to 3.3 Mb/s without equalization.
