This paper outlines a procedure to extend, or upsample, the ITU power delay profiles (PDP) to improve the frequency correlation properties while keeping the same mean delay and almost the same rms delay spread. Realistic frequency correlation properties are of particular importance for the evaluation of wideband system concepts with frequency dependent characteristics, e.g. frequency domain link adaptation and packet scheduling, both of which are likely to be part of future wideband systems such as based on OFDM. With the suggested procedure the frequency correlation can be kept approximately at or below 0.6 for frequency separations up to 25 MHz for the exemplified ITU Vehicular A and Pedestrian B channel profiles. The compatibility in terms of link level performance with WCDMA rake processing and the representation of the profiles on different sampling grids is briefly discussed in the paper.
