We introduce a test environment to replicate the well-known clustering of reflections in power delay profiles from urban wireless propagation environments that exhibit late-time delays and reflections. The test set-up combines discrete reflections generated by a fading simulator with the continuous distribution of reflections created in a reverberation chamber. We describe measurements made in an urban environment in Denver, Colorado that illustrate these multiple distributions of reflections. Our comparison of measurements made in the urban environment to those made in the new test environment shows good agreement.
