For a directional (a.k.a. directive) transceiver misaligned towards an omni-directional transceiver, the multipaths' time-of-arrival (TOA) distribution is herein derived in closed form explicitly in terms of the "geometric modeling" parameters. This derivation allows the directional beamwidth to mis-point to any arbitrary azimuth-direction, even if entirely away from the intended omni-directional transceiver.
