Abstract : This report presents current information on the observation, study and analysis of actual HF propagation measurements made between RADC propagation sites at Stockbridge, NY and Panama Canal Zone. The data collected was analyzed on an individual mode basis to determine the loss and fading characteristics pertinent to each mode. This report includes the results of measurements of the transmitting and receiving antenna gains from which basic propagation loss can be determined from total path loss. Sections on low elevation angle propagation considerations, antenna calibration procedures, automatic data collection, reduction and analysis, and satellite disturbance are included. (Author)
