Abstract

Crowding of the currently used frequency band has forced the telecommunication system engineers to seek for frequency band above Ku-band, 10GHz. However, electromagnetic signal tend to undergo fading effect when operated in this frequency band. Prediction of rain attenuation using 1-min rain rate is become necessary but the major concern is the lack of 1-min rain rate data. In most part of the world, rain data is measured for the agriculture and hydrological purpose which required higher integration time. Therefore, appropriate conversion method is needed for the conversion process. These paper present conversion methods such as Segal, Burgueno, Chebil and Rahman and Joo for the conversion in Malaysia. Segal method is found out to be most suitable to be used in Malaysia with overall RMS conversion error of 4%.
