    Abstract

    We present a statistical model of the scaling factor of rain attenuation encountered in dual-frequency satellite communication systems. The new model considers the impact of the random variations of rain drop size distribution on tropospheric slant path rain attenuation. The model is validated and calibrated using known empirical results.
