Abstract

Wet antenna attenuation during rain events is examined through carrying out simulated rain experiments. These were conducted on the receiving antenna located at Penang, Malaysia. The findings from these experiments are used to estimate rain attenuation data for that path by adjusting the collected data for wet antenna attenuation. This was done for the 1-year period of March 2007 to February 2008 and includes average and worst month cumulative distribution functions. The results of the measurement indicated that the wet antenna effect is a significant attenuator, and should be included in a link budget. The measured attenuation values were 4dB for the wet feed window and total reflector plus feed window attenuation value of 6.3dB at 20.2GHz, at a rain rate of 100mm/h.
