Abstract : The signal strengths received across five UHF paths in the Frobisher Bay and Resolution Island area were monitored for 15 months. All paths were over sea, with lengths in the range 90 to 182 km. Detailed monthly summaries of day-to-day fade depth and distribution are presented and analyzed. Comparisons with Rayleigh and Gauss distributions are made. Reflection, diffraction, ducting/shadowing, tidal effects, and diurnal variation were all observed on at least one path. The climatic conditions in the region are reviewed. Canada. (rrh)
