Abstract

To estimate the circuit quality of radio communication systems and design transmission methods for them, the designers need to quantitatively establish the way in which radio waves are transmitted within the system. Analysis of beacon data from an experiment in Nibong Tebal, Engineering Campus of Universiti Sains Malaysia (Latitude: 5.17°N and Longitude: 100.4°E) has shown evidence of diurnal, seasonal and annual variations in clear sky level. One and a half year (January 2007-June 2008) beacon data have been taken to do the analysis. This study showed the evidence of atmospheric effects to the beacon measurement.
