Abstract : This report is an extension to DNA 5304D and DNA-IR-82-02 which presented the radio propagation algorithms recommended for use by DNA to calculate the properties of scintillated signals. This report covers effects related to antennas and extends the formalism to cover two component power spectra of plasma fluctuations. In addition, an improved representation of the total electron content power spectrum is included to support space radar and similar applications. Appendix E contains SUBROUTINE PROP which implements the radio propagation models.... Propagation, Satellite communications, Signal scintillation, Radar, Fading, Nuclear effects.
