The utilization of high frequencies, such as Ka-band and beyond, necessary to avoid the highly congested lower satellite frequencies and to get larger bandwidth availability is considered for many developing satellite systems. The new satellite low-margin systems in Ka-band will need to be designed using fade countermeasures to counteract rain attenuation.(More)
Space-earth atmospheric attenuation in absence of rain can be estimated from atmospheric physical parameters, which are, in turn, obtainable from radiometric measurements of the sky brightness temperature. In this paper the radiometric inversion coefficients needed to retrieve the total vapour and liquid water content of the atmosphere from radiometric(More)
