This paper presents spatio-temporal measurements for the peer-to-peer radio channel at a center frequency of 1920 MHz with 140 MHz of radio-frequency bandwidth. The measurements were taken using a spread-spectrum channel sounder and an automated spatial probing system that uses precise computer-controlled positioning and orientation of omnidirectional and directional (30 beamwidth) antennas to measure both the angles-of-arrival and time-delays of multipath components.

The paper also quantitatively describes a trend that shows how angular spread increases with increasing delay spread.
