The US Army Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL) conducted an experiment in 1973 to measure the properties of radar backscatter from rain at millimeter wavelengths. Rain backscatter and attenuation were measured with pulse radars operating simultaneously at 9.375, 35, 70, and 95 GHz over a wide range of rain intensities while continuous measurements of raindrop size and rainfall rate were made. This report describes the measurement technique, details of the instrumentation, the data analysis procedure, and the rain backscatter data obtained from A-scope photographs and video tapes
