Long-term data for unusually strong tropospheric amplitude scintillations at 6.2 GHz on a satellite up-link are presented. A diurnal maximum in the afternoon and seasonal peaks in spring and autumn are found. The high-level scintillation activities are explained in terms of local tropospheric conditions and propagation theory. A typical power spectrum and distribution are discussed.
