IJRE-International Journal of Research in Electronics Modeling Aspects of Fade at Ku Band of Frequencies

Y Ravi, Dr, T Ramana
One of the problems laid down by these millimetre wavelengths (either for terrestrial or satellite telecommunication systems for fixed services) is to mitigate the influence of the atmosphere on propagation. As the operating frequency is increased, the attenuation and scintillation effects of atmospheric gas, clouds and rain become more important. This paper reviews various dynamic aspect of rain attenuation, explaining their meaning and their essence in the design of FMT systems, and presents
