Abstract:

Shortwave fadeout data for the period 1955 through 1969 were analyzed and correlated with solar flare data for the same period. Details of the analysis are presented along with various statistical presentations of the data. The validity of computerized objective procedures for matching geophysical data is shown. Some doubt is cast on the quality of the shortwave fadeout data during the early part of the period considered.
