Abstract

The performance of rain attenuation models in equatorial zones is still a debated issue due to the lack of measurements reported from these areas. Therefore, Therefore the rainfall path attenuation at 12.255 GHz measured at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) for three years is presented. It shows that the power law function of rain attenuation with ground rain rate deviates at very high rain rate. A comparison is made between the measured cumulative distributions and current prediction models, in order to determine which model gives the best prediction for this location.
