Abstract:

The mechanism for fading and multipath propagation is discussed for communication links involving satellites and aircraft with relatively wide antenna beams. Three types of fading models are assumed and the required margins estimated for FSK teletype transmission using several different criteria. The gain achieved by the use of some common forms of diversity combining is considered. The effect of antenna discrimination against the reflected transmission path is also included. Author
