Abstract
In 1984 a microwave propagation experiment was conducted in Alert, NWT, to study the characteristics of low angle fading at a frequency of 38 GHz. By monitoring the CW signal transmitted from the orbiting LES-8 satellite, propagation data were gathered over a range of elevation angles from 1 to 21 degrees. A total of three sets of measurements were made in the spring, summer and winter. These allowed comparisons to be made of the seasonal characteristics of low angle fading in the arctic.
