This paper presents the results of channel sounding experiment performed in confined environment. The swept time-delay cross-correlation technique is used as a method for sounding to measure the channel impulse response (CIR). PDF of the envelope and power for the received CIR is presented.The path loss exponent has been calculated. The data has been analysed for impulse response and channel parameters like average delay, rms delay spread, number of paths and channel bandwidth. The CIR is used in calculation of total received power.
