AbstractThe insertion loss of different materials is measured at 2.4, 3.3 and 5.5 GHz bands. Directive antennas with a nominal gain of 19 dB are used in the measurement campaign. The height of the antennas has been selected to have the minimum possible reflection from around surfaces. Metallic door with porthole window, metallic grid, glass window, human beings and tree's insertion loss are measured. The metallic grid presents a band pass filter function with a resonance frequency between 3.2 to 3.3 GHz. Other materials have an insertion loss that increases with the increment of the operating frequency.
