Abstract:

For long-range horizon search radars it is concluded that dual polarization reception or the reception of the opposite hand of circular polarization from that transmitted, when circular polarization is transmitted is necessary for radars operating at UHF and below. Dual polari zation reception may be necessary for L-band radars. Dual polarization reception is not necessary for radars operating at S-band and above. Author
