Abstract

Predictions of rain rate and rain attenuation are the most vital steps when analyzing a satellite link operating at frequencies above 10 GHz. Rain attenuation at 12.594 GHz over a satellite path link was measured for the period of 3 years (i.e. January 2002 to December 2004) at Bangkok (13.7°N, 100.7°E). In this paper, a comparison between the current methodologies available to model the impact of rain in earth-space propagation and a dataset of 3 years of rain accumulation with a sampling period of 1 min is made.
