60 GHz Band Propagation Experiments on Terrestrial Paths in Sydney and Praha
MetadataShow full item record
Two studies of the outdoor propagation of 60 GHz microwaves are described. The focus of this paper is the relationship between rainfall and measured attenuation of the microwave signal. Experimental data are presented and the measured statistics are compared with the Recommendations of the ITU-R. Measured rain intensity statistics at the two sites were found to be in good agreement with the ITU-R Recommendations, however measured attenuations were higher than those calculated using the models provided by the ITU-R.
KeywordsElectromagnetic wave propagation, attenuation due to rain, rain intensity distribution, rain attenuation distribution
