Abstract : A test program was conducted during the period of March 83 to March 84 to characterize variations in path loss between the existing Defense Communication Systems (DCS) troposcatter in sites in Martlesham Heath, UK and Hoek van Holland, NL. Similar measurements, but of a more limited time duration (January through March 1984), were conducted on the planned replacement link between Martlesham Heath and Woensdrecht, NL. In addition, data on the multipath dispersion of the latter link was also obtained. Details of the test program together with an analysis of the data are reported in this document. Keywords include: Digital European Backbone (DEB), DEB Links, Multipath Troposcatter and Testing.
