We characterize multipath fading at low elevation angles for unshadowed line-of-sight propagation over a landmobile satellite link. Equipment aboard a van recorded a CW signal from INMARSAT'S geostationary satellite MARECS-B2 while driving in the states of Utah, Nevada, Washington, and Oregon. Elevation angles ranged from 7" to 14". The van carried a tracking helix antenna with beamwidths in the principal planes of approximately f18". Multipath fading was observed in flat and hilly terrain and… CONTINUE READING
