Abstract

Scintillation is the rapid signal fluctuations of amplitude and phase of a radiowave which can cause signal loss in the transmission path with time. Other propagation factors that contribute to the signal fluctuations must be omitted before using the raw data for scintillation studies. Scintillation occurs continuously whether it is under clear sky condition or raining. Therefore, during raining event, the scintillation data will be accompanied by the signal level attenuation caused by the rain. Hence, attention must be given when analyzing scintillation data during raining event. This paper presents the data analysis of the tropospheric scintillation for earth to satellite link at Ku-band. Eight months (May 2011 till December 2011) data were collected and were analyzed to see the effect of tropospheric scintillation during morning, midday, evening and midnight. In this paper, the scintillation data were analyzed during clear sky condition. Any spurious signals caused by other propagation factors were eliminated accordingly. The experimental data were collected using 2.4 m dish antenna through MEASAT 3 at 10.982 GHz. The elevation angle of the dish antenna is stationed at 77.5°. The findings show that scintillation amplitude during midday is highest if compared to morning, evening and midnight. During midnight, the scintillation amplitudes drop significantly.
