Abstract: Last World Radiocommunication Conference in 2015 (WRC-15), identified several frequency bands between 24.25 GHz and 86 GHz as possible candidates for the deployment of future terrestrial IMT-2020/5G systems. Agenda item 1.13 of next WRC-19 invites ITU-R to conduct and complete sharing and compatibility studies, taking into account the protection of services to which the band is allocated on a primary basis for the identified frequency bands. To conduct the studies in sharing scenarios between terrestrial 5G and the other affected services, mainly satellite and terrestrial fixed links; the interference signal at the receiver needs to be calculated by using the appropriate propagation model. Among the propagation models to be used, ITU-R Recommendation P. 2108-0 [Rec1] proposes a statistical clutter loss model for Earth-space and Aeronautical. This model, is based on theoretical equations and has been complemented with simulations [Rep1]. Hence, there is a need to validate it with real measurements. To this aim, the Joint Research Centre has conducted a first measurement campaign to characterize clutter loss in suburban environment at 26 GHz and 40 GHz. This document describes the scenario, the measurement setup and shows the initial results and comparisons.
