Paper Abstract

Calculations are made of rain-induced cross polarization and attenuation on horizontal paths, at wave-lengths between 1.36 and 30.0 millimeters, and rainfall rates between 5 and 40 millimeters per hour. On a one kilometer path, cross-polarization ratio vs wavelength exhibits a maximum in the region between 5 and 10 millimeters, the location in this region varying with rainfall rate.
