Results of the combination of a ray-tracing computer model with measured refractive-index vertical profiles to study the relationship between copolar attenuation and crosspolar discrimination due to multipath effects on LOS frequency-reuse microwave links are reported. The results are in good agreement with those obtained by direct measurements.
