heal.abstract For frequencies above 10GHz the performance of the operating satellite systems is mainly aggravated because of the potential existing severe rain attenuation. As a result of the above fading mechanism, the dominant interference sources encountered in this frequency band are the following: differential rain attenuation induced by an adjacent satellite system operating in the same frequency, and cross talk between orthogonally polarized signals. The latter source concerns of course satellite systems employing the dual polarization mode. In the present paper, an already existing method to predict interference statistics, due to above reasons, is properly modified to include ice crystals and raindrop canting angle effects. The assumption that the point rainfall rate statistics follows a gamma form, valid for heavy rain climatic regions such as J, M, N, P, Q zones, is also adopted. The sensitivity of various parameters affecting the interference performance, after introducing the novel assumptions, is finally investigated. en
