Measuring multipath loss for link budget using emperical measurements

Hello,

I am currently trying to figure out if it is possible to measure to multipath loss (in a given room) using two measurements; one from inside the room, and one from 'ideal' surroundings.

Is it possible to look at the relation from the measured RSSI from both the plots, and then determine the MPI?

Thanks in advance

I've never done that but it seems like it would give you the path loss regardless of the nature of the contributing losses.
The multipath loss or FSPL? The measurements are done from the same distance, and the passive losses are assumed to be the same in both environments. So are you saying that the relation between the indoor and 'ideal' measurements will give the multipath loss from the room?

No, though that might be true, I did not say that. I just meant to indicate that your method should show the difference between the two.
