We present a combined measurement and analysis of the spatial, temporal, and polarisation characteristics of a 1800 MHz radio channel. The measurements were performed using a correlative channel sounder. A complex chirp signal with a bandwidth of 150 MHz was transmitted by a vertically polarized omnidirectional antenna and received by a 8+8 dual polarized planar antenna array. Measurements were taken at two different base station locations, one being suburban and the other urban. Using this data we characterize the radio channel in terms of azimuth and delay spread of the vertical and horizontal polarization.
