Abstract:

Methods are described for calculating the effects of forward scatter by ionospheric irregularities on high-frequency sky-wave radio signals. The approach combines the forward-scatter theory developed to treat refracted-ray paths in the context of acoustic propagation in oceans with the model of ionospheric irregularities developed by the Defense Nuclear Agency. Expressions are given for calculating signal decorrelation in time, space and frequency. Keywords include High-frequency Radio-wave Propagation, Ionospheric propagation, HF Sky-wave propagation, Forward scatter, HF-channel model and HF propagation.
