Abstract:

Formulas for excitation of the earth-ionosphere waveguide by a vertical electric Hertzian dipole at satellite heights are developed along the lines of Buddens general theory. The formulation, based on horizontal stratification, allows in an approximate manner for a vertically inhomogeneous, anisotropic ionosphere as well as for earth curvature along the direction of propagation.
