In this paper, a general analysis is proposed for the prediction of the operational characteristics of a double polarization microwave communication system where the dominant factor for degradation has been taken to be the rainfall. This analysis can be considered as an improved version of previous techniques dealing with the same subject. One of the features of the paper is the analytical examination of the spatial inhomogeneity of the rain medium as it affects the joint statistical analysis between rain attenuation and depolarization.
