The measured rain rate, raindrop size distribution (DSD), and the ITU-R model over the frequency range from 1-100 GHz have been used to elucidate the cumulative rainfall rate and the variability of rain attenuation at Kototabang. Rain rate and DSD are recorded from ground-based optical rain gauge and disdrometer measurements, respectively. Considerable differences between the recorded data and the ITU-R model are observed at small time percentage. The specific rain attenuation obtained from the… CONTINUE READING
