I read over the document, and I think it confirms my first impressions. 
    For satellite work, multipath will likely be a non-problem.  As the 
BBC document indicates, the biggest problem is when the reflected signal 
is similar or stronger in strength than the direct-path signal.  There 
will be few, if any, cases where a nearby wind turbine will have a 
significantly clearer path to the spacecraft than you do, so the 
reflections will be many dB below the direct path signal.
