Application of FDTD (with companion UPML) to the coverage analysis of empty and filled (with wooden desks) indoor scenarios is explored and results compared, both in time and frequency domains, with those obtained via ray tracing along with UTD field calculations. Results of FDTD simulated coverage of an usual office space, locus of an ongoing digital TV experiment at 804 MHz, further illustrate the potentiality of the method.
