Abstract

In this paper we discuss two propagation elements which are crucial in the design - from both economical and technological perspective - of HTS systems utilizing Ka-, Q/V- or even W- frequency bands. These are the statistical combination of rain and cloud attenuation statistics and the inter-annual variability of the attenuation statistics. Also the recently proposed model for the prediction of annual rain statistics (ITU-R Rec. 837-7) is compared with rain data of 13 consecutive years at Chilbolton, UK.
