New results are described from an experiment for testing and improving the accuracy of radar derived slant path attenuations of the 28.56-GHz COMSTAR beacon signal using an electromechanical disdrometer located at Wallops Island, VA. Continued overall good agreement between measured and radar derived fades were noted on a case-by-case basis and statistically for the new data base.
