In this paper, we propose a frequency reuse method for efficient frequency use of multi-site weather radar. Our method uses a set of orthogonal pulse compression codes and CLEAN algorithm for sidelobe interference cancellation. Computer simulation results show that performance of proposed method meet performance requirements of [1], The current S-band weather radars in South Korea use the 8 different frequency channels to avoid interference. Using proposed method, number of occupied channels can reduce from 8 to 1, the 7 frequency channels may be use for other services.
