This paper is a preliminary study to investigate the attenuation of microwave propagation on the oil palm trees at three different frequencies, which are 0.9 GHz, 1.8 GHz and 2.3 GHz. The purpose is to analyse the travelling wave behavior by determine the signal strength through vegetation. A test site of homogeneous planted oil palm trees was chosen to get the valid and reliable measurements. The experiments were also carried out the analysis with consistent transmission paths under different number of trees (1, 2, 3 and 4) at distance of 4 m which obstructing the signal path with different height (trunk, fruit and leave). The findings obtained reveal the characteristics of received signal as the distances and number of trees increasing.
