An engineering method of evaluating sky-wave field intensities in the high frequency band for any transmission distance up to about 15,000 kilometers is presented. Field intensity recordings were statistically analyzed in order to study daytime absorption, day-to-day variations, and absolute magnitudes. Based upon the analysis, a proposed prediction method was obtained which should give relatively accurate sky-wave field intensities for the frequencies and distances considered. Succeeding sections show the method of analysis of absorption, the method of analysis of absolute magnitudes, the method of analysis of day-to-day variations, the proposed field intensity prediction method, and summarizing conclusions. All necessary equations used in the prediction method are represented in nomograms.
