The presence of a reflected component in a line-of-sight radio system influences the phase variability resulting from atmospheric changes along and near the path. An analysis is made of a simple case showing the general nature of this effect and the parameters upon which it depends. A method is presented for calculating the phase behavior of the resultant signal, in terms of that expected from a single direct component, and the relevant system parameters.
