Maritime wireless communication is in the stage of continuous development. Medium and short wave communication has always been the main method of maritime communications. Realizing rapid, efficient, and reliable signal transmission is the urgent need for the development of current situation. In this paper, aiming at MF, HF, or VHF radio waves emitted by land, Bayesian linear regression model is used to solve the reflection problem of calm sea surface, and then EM (expectation maximization) algorithm is further used to solve the complex Bayesian model to solve the reflection problem of rough sea surface. Furthermore, the advantages of the Bayesian linear regression model over other models, such as the Longley-Rice model, are obtained.
