Faraday rotation stations were installed at Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Blantyre and Grahamstown and were operated for about ten days including the period of the eclipse on 30th Jun 1973. The records show that total electron content perturbations due to the eclipse were much smaller than other authors had forecast. Refinement of the raw data by filtering is in progress but the results are expected still to be difficult to interpret in terms of gravity waves. These observations agree with those of others so far published. Author
