Abstract:

This report is an extension of Radio Wave Propagation in Structured Ionization for Satellite Applications, DNA 5304D, Dec 79. That document presented algorithms for calculating signal structure parameters which characterize scintillated radio signals. This report extends the applicability of that work to include locally homogeneous spectral indices less than two. The report also describes the phase effects only component of a scintillated signal and folds antenna effects in the formalism. Finally, a number of loose ends from DNA 5304D were treated.
