In this paper a simple deconvolution process for angle of arrival (AoA) retrieval is applied in a environment composed of up to five metallic poles to mimic a clusters of scatterers in the vicinity of the receiver. A measurement campaign
was performed inside an anechoic chamber in two different configurations and a deconvolution process is applied to the measured signal. Preliminary results at K-band show that the proposed technique can be used to effectively retrieve the angle of arrival in a controlled environment as well as the relative power between the direct and the pole reflected components, that are of most importance for angular spread evaluation so that refinement of existing and new propagation models can be achieved. In future works the algorithm will be tested within a polarimetric modelling of the propagation channel and will also
be used to obtain the angular spread (AS).
