This paper presents channel characterisation work carried out at the University of Bristol as part of the Mobile VCE Core 3 programme. Three major measurement campaigns have been conducted. The first is focused on SISO links in body area networks (BAN). Particular attention is given to the relationship between the channel characteristics and the user’s motion. The second set of measurements investigates the potential of multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) antenna systems in personal area networks (PAN). Finally, PAN MIMO measurements are conducted in an office environment
