Experimental results obtained on two line-of-sight links at 36 GHz and 110 GHz operating over a period of more than two years across central London are summarised. Scintillation measurements on the two links show that the experimental results are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions of Tatarski. Additional scintillation information on millimetre-wave propagation in a town environment, attenuation due to rainfall and fog, and long-term statistics are also presented.
