Abstract

This article presents the results of a fixed millimeter-wave short-hop radio wave propagation study at 38 GHz. A wideband measurement campaign was performed using three cross-campus radio links from April to August 1998 at Virginia Tech. 73,963 power delay profiles (PDPs) were recorded during different weather events such as clear sky, rain, and hail. Rain/hail attenuation, short-term signal variation, and multipath statistics were studied. The measured rain attenuation (in excess of free space) slightly exceeds the Crane model prediction. Short term variation of received signal strength during rain follows Rician distribution with a K factor inversely proportional to rain rate. The wideband measurements indicate that multipath can occur due to foliage and reflections from wet surfaces during rain.
