AbstractThis paper examines the effect of antenna gain pattern on multipath fades for a typical aeronautical telemetry system. Assuming a parabolic reflector antenna at the tracking station and a single specular reflection as the source of multipath, an expression for the fade depth which incorporates the attenuating effects of the antenna gain pattern is derived. A representative example is presented which demonstrates the utility of the expressions derived.
