Experimental results from forward scattering of high frequency radio signals from meteor trails are described for a ground to ground link. The experimental results are compared with theoretical predictions and close agreement is demonstrated. The design of a very high frequency airborne meteor scatter system is addressed and it is shown to present significant problems, different in nature from those encountered in ground based systems. It is shown that experimental studies of aircraft electromagnetic noise are required before an optimal system can be designed. The reduction in data throughput due to Faraday rotation is also described. Author
