Real k Factor values for West Africa - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi y'orl
Does anyone out there have real measured values of earth radius k factors valid for long rf paths in West Africa?
Whilst there are available formulas when you have humidity, temperature and pressure profiles over the first 1000 meters of height in the tropo, I am looking more for radio measured values over real links.
I am getting measured RF levels end-to-end on a VHF link of 100km that are way below most software model predictions.
