Assuming el is cell variable with a matrix of 30 X 3300 being rows and colums.
for PRN =1:30
for t = 1:3300
M_d(PRN,t)= 1/(sin(el(PRN,t))+(0.00143/tan(el(PRN, t))+0.0445));
M_w(PRN, t)=1/(sin(el)+(0.00035/tan(el)+0.017));
end
end
The error i had.
Check for incorrect argument data type or missing argument in call to function 'sin'.

Could you confirm that each entry in the cell is a numeric scalar? Your code will fail otherwise.
If it is a numeric scalar then use cell2mat and simple vectorized numeric calculations. Remember to switch from / to ./

If the value is stores in a cell, then you should write
el{PRN,t}
in order to extract the value as a double.
