Abstract:

The report describes the design, fabrication, test, and launch of two rocket probe receiver packages to measure the propagation of ELF and VLF signals in the ionosphere. The second phase of the program included the study and design of a miniaturized receiver package to be electrically the same but with physical and environmental characteristics of an ARCAS meteorological rocket. The results of the program, including the trip report, are summarized.
