Test Zone Verification Procedures in a Random-LOS Measurement Setup

The goal is to find a way to reduce the number of samples needed to estimate the standard deviation and the mean value within a circular test zone. It was found that more than 50 samples are needed to get reliable performance with the verification procedure using two orthogonal lines. However all three investigated methods work well, but the two other methods need more than 100 samples. This means that the samples can be taken within the test zone along two orthogonal lines, in a spiral shape, as well as a combination of these two methods, depending on the user's preference.
