Abstract:

Propagation in the LoVHF 30-100 MHz frequency band possesses characteristics common to both HF 3-30 MHz and HiVHF 100-300 MHz propagation. It is this feature which makes this frequency band both interesting and complex. The primary interest of this report is the modes of propagation between surface- or near-surface-based transmitters and receivers. For a given range, the strength, geographical and temporal dependence, and likelihood of a particular mode of propagation will be discussed. In the last section, various existing models that could be used to describe the field strength and transmission loss in the LoVHF band are assessed. These models and the discussion of the various modes of propagation fall roughly into two groups i those that affect ranges less than 500 km and ii those that affect ranges greater than 500 km.
