A measurement campaign to investigate the polarisation behaviour of on-body communication channels using a dual polarised antenna is reported. The antenna is a combination of a monopole and loop antenna, which yields the required vertical and horizontal polarization respectively in the XY plane. Measurements were done using this antenna on the body in indoor environment. The collected data has been processed and the results are presented.
