Abstract : Total electron content measurements of the earth-moon interspace were made by measuring the Faraday rotation of the returned echoes from the moon at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan (Lat. 53 degrees 13 minutes, Long. 105 degrees 56 minutes), during the July 20, 1963, solar eclipse. The radar operates at 448 Mc/s with a maximum average power of about 150 kW and uses an 84-ft paraboloidal antenna with a beamwidth of about 2.5 degrees. Transmissions were made using horizontal linear polarization.(Author)
