|In this work, the propagation loss due to diffraction and insertion losses for indoor scenario at 5.6 GHz band are measured using directive antenna and a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA). It is shown that the insertion loss of a metallic door with porthole window varies from several dB due to the propagation loss via the porthole glass up to 50 dB due to the diffraction by the porthole boards when the line between the transmitting antenna and receiving one is outside the porthole glass. It is shown that the insertion loss of a 12 cm brick wall is 4.8 dB for vertical polarization while it is 6.3 dB for horizontal polarization. Also it is shown the diffraction loss due single or double concrete columns depends on the distance between the transmitting and receiving antennas.
