Abstract:

Individual fades observed with six antennae are reduced for different combinations of three of them. The differences between drift vectors so found are statistically analyzed. The normal case is not a plane but a curved front radius down to 100 m. A descriptive interpretation is given by out- and ingoing curved fronts sources and sinks . When a prevailing drift is present the basic form of the extremal lines is elliptical. Statistics shows an average axis ratio 2 1 with more sinks than sources. Five years of dense observations prove solar and lunar tides to be rather different for low and high declination. An automatic drift-measuring apparatus based on crosscorrelation technique is described. Author
