In this paper we investigate the received signal characteristics of on-body communications channels at 2.45 GHz. The hypothetical body area network configuration considered a transmitter node situated on the person's left waist and receiving nodes positioned on the head, knee and wrist of the person's right side. The on-body channel measurements were performed in both anechoic and reverberant environments while the person was moving. It was found that the recently proposed shadowed κ-μ fading model provided an excellent fit to the measured data.
