With the promotion of “the Belt and Road” and twenty-first-century “Maritime Silk Road” and the establishment of an information network in Hainan Province, the construction of network covering Southern China Sea is particularly important, which should combine with cable, wireless and satellite transmissions. The complexity of the impact of the marine environment on radio wave propagation and the particularity of communication between vessels are important factors to be considered when designing marine radio communication systems. This paper studies the models of sea channel for sea surface diffuse reflection. In this model, the performance of OFDM transmission was analyzed.
