We present measurement results at 2.45 GHz to evaluate blockage shadowing and fading effects due to furniture and people next to terminals for short range indoor communication systems. The followings are the results: people crossing the link near to a terminal can cause fading up to 20dB which is more than furniture blockage measured of about 5-13dB depending on objects over the links, polarization coupling was also measured by using dual polarized antenna at receiving end, and coupling is higher for obstructed links, which suggests polarization diversity.
