Abstract:

An experimental investigation was conducted in the Caribbean area to relate measured meteorological parameters with ground-to-ground radio signal characteristics. The ground-to-ground link was the 614 km. overwater path between Grand Turk, British West Indies, and East Island, Puerto Rico, using ANMRC-98 Radio Sets. Meteorological measurements were made from sea level to an altitude of 17 km and covered the areas along the ground-to-ground propagation path, off-axis to this path, and in the vicinity of the ground stations. The airborne measurements were performed by four specially equipped METEOROLOGICAL and MARCOM Microwave-Airborne-Relay Comm aircraft. Ground measurements were performed in the vicinity of the troposcatter terminals by specially equipped meteorological poles. Author
