Abstract

Attenuation due to rain plays an important part in satellite industries. These attenuation could be measured directly via satellite beacon at frequency 12.255 GHz (Ku-band). Therefore, measurements of 3 years signal attenuation due to rain data at Tronoh are presented. The measured data are compared with four prediction signal attenuation due to rain models such as Ramachandran Kumar, Garcia Lopez, International Telecommunication Union-Region and Goddard Thurai model. The Ramachandran Kumar model performed the best with the lowest percentage error below 10 % compared with the other two models.
