Paper Abstract

Measurements of rain attenuation at millimeter wavelengths are usually carried out with time constants in the range 1-10 sec. Using a spectrum analyzer at the output of a LOS link receiver, the microstructure of the time variation of rain attenuation at 94 GHz has been studied in Calcutta. It has been found that fine structures often exceed a few decibels and usually have a dominant time scale of a few milliseconds depending on the rain rate. Analyses of these microstructures, which may have bearings on the performance of high rate digital communications, will be presented in this paper.
