The satellite communication services have grown on last years and the radiowave spectrum to support them is saturated. So, it ’s necessary to search for frequency bands higher than the presently used ones, to allocate new services. But the problem of radiowave degradation by rain is critical for communication links operating above 10 GHz, and a precise knowledge of rain attenuation is important tu design reliable satelhte communication links, considering that it must operate under all… CONTINUE READING
