Abstract:

This report contains detailed descriptions of the FORTRAN computer codes IONSCNT, which calculates average ionospheric amplitude and phase scintillation conditions on a global basis, and the auxiliary statistics program DIST, which uses the IONSCNT outputs to calculate fading statistics. Operating instructions for the programs together with examples and descriptions of the various outputs are included. The theoretical background and data base for the program development is contained in a separately published report.
