Abstract:

The directivity offered by the Z-mode can be very advantageous in making radio astronomical observations of high resolution. The positions are calculated of a 1000 km circular orbit satellite in terms of the universal time and the day of the year, from which it can see radiation from the Sun propagating through the Z-mode.
