Results of an empirical investigation of the diurnal phase variation of 10.2 kHz Omega signals are presented. Particular attention is paid to path defintion, including excitation regionas and spatial extent. Observed behavior is explained as the response of the ionosphere to incident solar radiation after consideration of characteristic but variable time constant. Anomalous electron production at sunrive, presumably due to photodeteachment, is shown to be important. Author
