One of the main assumptions in the Clarke's classic channel model is isotropic scattering, i.e. uniform distribution for the angle of arrival of multipath components at the mobile station. However, in many mobile radio channels the authors encounter non-isotropic scattering, which strongly affects the correlation function and power spectrum of the complex envelope at the mobile receiver. In this contribution, they propose the use of the versatile von Mises angular distribution, which includes and/or closely approximates important distributions like uniform, impulse, cardioid, Gaussian, and wrapped Gaussian, for modeling the non-uniform angle of arrivals at the mobile.
