Abstract:

This report describes ionospheric studies which were made by observing satellite signals from Kingston, Jamaica. 40 and 41 MHz signals from moving satellites were used, as were 136 MHz signals from geostationary satellites. Scintillation results showed that 6dB fading at 136 MHz might be expected about .05 of the time, and was expected to vary not more than by a factor of 4 over a sunspot cycle. Author
