A well-known rigorous technique proposed by Lin for predicting rain attenuation statistics for terrestrial links has been modified in order to apply it to 5-min point rainfall long-term distributions and to include the case of earth-space links. This same technique leads to the construction of an effective predictive model for the rain depolarization statistics. Comparison of the so-obtained theoretical results with experimental data has been quite encouraging.
