Vhfuhf satellite signals from the Pacific FleetSat have been monitored in Guam from April 1982 through 1 May 1983 to study the drift characteristics of equatorial scintillation. Two receivers spaced 1500 feet 457 metres apart in an east-west direction were used. In addition, one receiver was used to monitor the L-band signals from the Pacific MariSat. Occurrence and intensity of equatorial scintillation are compared to drift velocities and geomagnetic and solar activity. Drift velocities and geomagnetic activity are also compared.
