Title: Proposed Model for Radio Wave Attenuation due to Rain (RWAR)
Keywords: Radio wave propagation, Rain attenuation, Rain fade, Satellite communication, Terrestrial communication

Abstract: Radio wave attenuation is primarily caused by the absorption of a radio signals by some atmospheric phenomenon like rain, snow or ice, clouds, dust etc. These losses are more prevalent in the frequency ranges above 10 GHz. Attenuation caused by rain is not only limited to satellite up-link and down-link but it can also affect the point-to-point terrestrial microwave links above 10 GHz. This paper briefly discussed about the work done by researchers at different parts of the world regarding the attenuation caused by the rain for higher frequencies. It then proposes a mathematical model for prediction of radio wave attenuation due to rain. The implementation results of proposed model were also compared with the ITU-R model.
