A multi-receiver propagation experiment is described in which received signal level fluctuations are measured at different heights on the receiver site of the 50 km long terrestrial path operating in the 10 GHz band. Five receivers are installed on the mast in the heights of 51.5, 61.1, 90.0, 119.9 and 145.5 m above the ground. Multipath fading events due to atmospheric refraction are observed and analysed. Annual joint statistics and correlation characteristics of the received signals in different heights are obtained from the first year data.
