The differential equations which must be integrated to obtain full-wave solutions for radio propagation in a continuous ionosphere are given. A computer program integrates the equations using the reflection coefficient matrix as the dependent variable. The program is compared with an earlier version DASA Report 1615 which uses an admittance-matrix integration. The program computes its own initial conditions using an exact solution for EW propagation due to Crombie for a sharply bounded ionosphere. Author
