In this work we continue the analysis of a probabilistic approach and the corresponding stochastic multiparametric model of wave propagation in built-up areas with randomly distributed buildings. We concentrate on the influence of buildings' overlay profile on signal decay within the UHF/X-band urban propagation channels. Using different buildings' overlay profiles, the field loss characteristics are examined taking into account single scattering and multiple scattering phenomena, and diffraction from buildings' corners and rooftops, for various positions of receiver and transmitter antenna with respect to surrounding obstacles. The comparison between experimental and theoretical predictions is presented.
