Abstract : Two methods of reducing the effects of the parametric amplifier on weather clutter were investigated. The first method involved turning off the parametric amplifier during periods of severe weather. The second method provided for RF attenuation at the receiver input. The first method was rejected primarily because it did not lend itself to remote control from the operator's position. The second method fully met all immediate requirements and was recommended as a satisfactory, interim solution. (Author)
