This work extends the use of wavelet-based denoising as an alternative processing scheme to improve measured mobile-radio channel power delay profiles. It has already been reported that, when applied on real domain data (amplitude only), denoising provides mainly a qualitative improvement. Here, phase content was also considered, leading to significant qualitative and quantitative improvement of the processed profiles. Signal-to-noise ratios and dynamic ranges improvements as high as 50 dB have been observed.
