Abstract : This report presents calculated attenuation of 10-20 GHz signals based on the rain and cloud cover encountered over 50-400 km air-to-ground data links. Of primary concern are ground antenna elevation angles of 0 to 5 deg. Results are presented giving total attenuation as a fucntion of percentage of time, range, and aircraft altitude. (Author)
