Abstract:

In this volume a survey is made of available information on the propagation of centimeter and millimeter waves, with emphasis on application for short all-weather links. Factors affecting propagation are reviewed, including interference and diffraction effects, atmospheric absorption, ducting, atmospheric scintillations, and the effects of precipitation. The latter subject is covered in great detail, including techniques described in the literature for prediction of the distribution of occurrence of given atenuation levels due to precipitation. Procedures for applying this information to the prediction of mean signal level and expected range of signal variations are described. Author
