Abstract:

The radio-wave interaction technique was applied to the study of the lower ionosphere at College, Alaska. The system employes a pulsed wanted transmitter operating at a frequency of 4.86 Mcs and a pulsed disturbing transmitter operating at 17.5 Mcs with an output power of 100 kw. Radio-wave interaction has been recorded over the elevation range from 30 to 70 km. The system is best adapted to observations under somewhat disturbed ionospheric conditions. The bserved interaction normally shows significant variation within time intervals of the order of minutes. Some collision frequency and electron density values were derived. Author
