An investigation of the polarization characteristics of the cellular radio system for wireless local area network inside a corridor confirmed that the horizontal polarization forms a large electric field distribution rather than the vertical polarization. Moreover, the optimum polarization to obtain a smaller attenuation coefficient is a horizontal polarization excited by the flat antenna which has nulls toward floor and ceiling. The field distributions obtained by the ray tracing analysis agree with the experiments. The optimum polarization is determined by the cross section of the corridor and the radiation pattern of the base antenna.
