Abstract: A field study is presently under way in Riyadh city, Saudi Arabia, to study the effects of rain, sand storms and multipath-fading on millimetric wave propagation. This paper summarizes the measured sand/dust storm parameters and its effect on the radiolinks. The purpose of the measurements of sandstorms is twofold. First, we use the storm parameters which have considerable effects on wave propagation such storms. The second aim is to compare the measured attenuation, as the millimetric-waves propagate through sand storms, with the calculated value of attenuation. Such calculated attenuation is found by using an attenuation model which relates attenuation to visibility, frequency and particle size and refractive index.
