The non performance of a microwave communication link located over Kolkata due to heavy rain in the monsoon months of 2006 has been investigated by monitoring the amplitude variation of signal on twenty hour basis. It has been seen that the link did not serve any purpose for 4% during the monsoon period of 2006 while the signal level was less than -78 dBm. Infact the study revealed that the link performance started deteriorating when the signal was of the order of -73 dBm.
