The excess attenuation due to rainfall on a 24 km microwave path in Bedfordshire between Cranfield and Everton was measured over the period January 1967 to December 1968. A comparison is made between the fading at the three frequencies to determine the relationship between them. The results are compared with the theoretical work of Oguchi.
