A physical wideband propagation model for the fixed wireless channel, with particular emphasis on K-factor and RMS delay spread and their variation as a function of range and antenna beamwidth, is described. The purpose of the model is to generate a set of spatially distributed scatterers, in accordance with given empirical channel characteristics. The model is successfully compared with existing empirical models.
