A set of experiments were performed in order to investigate certain aspects of the effects of heating the ionosphere by a high power transmitter. These experiments, based on analogous laboratory experiments, consisted in exciting the ionosphere by a variety of methods using the ITS 2-megawatt transmitter and then simultaneously quick-look analyzing the reflected waves using a spectrum analyzer and recording them on analog magnetic tape for subsequent data reduction and analysis. Experiments were performed to determine the nonlinear behavior of electrons under the pump excitation.
