    I want to ask some questions. If I choose my antenna pattern as Katherine antenna pattern and use typical urban channel, does antenna pattern be included in typical urban channel? For different angle of elevation, does channel matrix change? thank you.

    Dear Kai,

    When using the typical urban channel the antenna pattern doesn’t influence the channel matrix (fast fading), these two parameters are generated independently. The antenna gain is added on top of the pathloss map, and the path-loss is added as loss to the received channel matrix.

    Only for geometry-based stochastic channel models such as 3GPP 3D channel and winner model, the antenna pattern impacts the channel matrix (fast fading).

    Best regards,
