The results of measurements of the extinction coefficient on the atmospheric path using devices based on a laser with a long cavity are presented. It is shown that inserting an additional mirror in the cavity makes it possible to extend the measurable range of extinction coefficient up to ~50 km-1. Estimates of the variance of fluctuations in the intensity of the laser radiation with two- and three-mirror cavities are evaluated.
