This paper describes the implementation of a
Ka-band satellite channel simulator with emphasis on the
synthesis of scintillation processes. The problem becomes
one of generating a given probability density function, the
Moulsley-Vilar distribution, with a specified power spectral
density using aWiener model based on orthogonal Hermite
polynomials for the nonlinearity. A numerical procedure is
devised to calculate the filter and non-linearity coefficients
of the Wiener model. The generation of rain processes
conforms to the Maseng-Bakken model.
