Abstract:

The first amplitude probability density functions of signals reflected from Echo II, Echo I and the Moon are compared. From the density functions for Echo II, the ratio of specular power correlated to scattered power uncorrelated and the range of fading are obtained, from which the behavior of the surface characteristics are obtained as a function of time during the first four months in orbit.
