Abstract

Attenuation due to rain is a fundamental cause of communication impairment on satellite-earth paths, specifically above 10GHz. Rainfall is a serious source of attenuation at such a frequency. This paper presents the rain fade duration statistics that can be obtained from measured data. These data were interpreted in several groups of attenuation exceeds the threshold, then to analyze the data and get rain fade duration statistics for a period of one year. Eventually, from these measured data, the number of events per year can be estimated; also with these data in per year can be estimated that Monsoon season has a higher number of fade events and longer the fade durations.
