Theoretical methods are developed for predicting the transmission loss over a tropospheric scatter path from a point on the earth to a satellite. The results indicate that presently available equipment allows reliable communication to only slightly beyond the radio horizon. Some of the difficulties encountered in designing experiments to test the theoretical predictions are investigated.
