Thread-topic: [CRTech] RE: AMBOS Uplink location

I’ve had total outages when big storms have passed through Raleigh.  Surrounded on each side timewise by burpy audio.

yes, you can definitely get plenty of fade on c band with a thunderstorm. easy to tell when there's a T-storm in the Raleigh area. or locally, on the downlink. i've seen 4-6 db drop on the Focus rcvr and none on mine, 5mi away, or vice versa with tstorms in the area.

that, after all, is why weather radar works, and how it can show you the intensity of a storm.

I've seen C-band rain fades of 5db on our 3m dish.

Normal EbNo is 12-13, during heavy rain it's dipped to low 8's.

C-band uplinks are not affected by weather like the Ku-band.  Rain can affect the C-band by only a few tenths of a dB.  Unlike the Ku-band where 20 dB fades are not uncommon.

Curious where the ambos uplink is located in North Carolina. Our EbNo just dipped to yellow and alarmed me. I suspect it's weather at the uplink.
