Is 5.8Ghz range effected by cloud?

Recommended Posts

I keep meaning to post about this but I dont think I did. A while back during the snow I was flying my BiTwinstar with the G9 on it to get some pics of the snow coverage. A one point at only about 3/4 of a mile the picture was lost and I asked my spotters where the plane was. The answer was very unexpected, they said it was behind a big snow cloud!

The good news is that after a very long 30 seconds or so the video came back as the plane drifted back to me and out of the cloud (I always try to fly upwind).

Has anyone else had this happen?

I'm a fair-weather pilot so I avoid flying in the cold, wind, or any other obnoxious mother nature situation. :) But I certainly would imagine that the 5.8GHz RF would be attenuated a bit if you got behind a thick cloud. Glad it ended well!
