This article treats the problem of angular spread AS estimation at a base station of a macro-cellular system when a line-of-sight LOS is potentially present. The new low-complexity AS estimator first estimates the LOS component with a moment-based K-factor estimator. Then, it uses a look-up table LUT approach to estimate the mean angle of arrival AoA and AS. Provided that the antenna geometry allows it, the new algorithm can also benefit from a new procedure that selects the angular distribution of the received signal from a set of possible candidates. For this purpose, a nonlinear antenna configuration is required. When the angular distribution is known, any antenna structure could be used a priori; hence, we opt in this case for the simple uniform linear array ULA. We also compare the new estimator with other low-complexity estimators, first with Spread Root-MUSIC, after we extend its applicability to nonlinear antenna array structures, then, with a recently proposed two-stage algorithm. The new AS estimator is shown, via simulations, to exhibit lower estimation error for the mean AoA and AS estimation.
