Scintillation fading of signals in the SHF band
IN September 1970, the Mount Longonot satellite telecommunication station, situated in the Rift Valley thirty miles north-west of Nairobi, was put into commercial operation by the East African External Telecommunication Company. Telephone and telegraph links are maintained with five other stations by means of the Intelsat III-F4 satellite, which is in quasi-geostationary orbit over the Indian Ocean at 62.5° E longitude. Fig. 1 shows the positions of the satellite and the ground stations and the carrier frequencies used are. given in Table 1.
