Long Distance Tropospheric Propagation Measurements between North Africa and Spain

Albrecht P. Barsis; Richard C. Kirby

Abstract: The Radio Propagation Engineering Division of the National Bureau of Standards undertook a study of propagation conditions in the VHF and UHF band over a 200 mile path between Morocco and Southern Spain. The study provides estimates of power requirements and other design data for a multi-channel communications system to be installed between the path terminals that meets requirements specified by the U.S. Air Force, which sponsored the study. This volume presents Part 1 of the report, Theoretical Estimates, Path Description, and Method of Operation.

Keywords: propagation prediction; power budget calculations; fading; frequency measurement; path loss
