This paper presents results from an experimental platform designed to measure the transfer matrix for indoor and outdoor multipleinput multiple-output (MIMO) channels with up to 16 transmit and receive antenna elements. Key aspects of the hardware system and data post-processing techniques are provided. A variety of measurements have been taken with the platform at 2.45 GHz in a typical indoor environment. The collected data has been processed to highlight a variety of channel features,
