The effects of precipitation static noise interference with the reception of radio navigation and communication signals on aircraft flying through ice and snow clouds were generated with an electrostatic wind tunnel. Electrical type antennas were found to be highly susceptible to precipitation static noise fields, whereas magnetic antennas were found to be practically immune to these noise fields unless the magnetic antennas were in close proximity to metal surfaces.
