Temporal-Angular channel sounding measurements of an indoor millimeter wave channel (60 GHz) is analyzed to determine whether ray arrivals at the receiver form clusters in the two-dimensional time-angle space. The channel behavior for directional antennas (with various 3dB beamwidths) at the transmitter is discussed and geometric interpretation of the results is provided.
