Abstract:

During this quarter there was the start of an extensive review of the literature on middle latitude irregularities. In earlier reports we have noted the levels of irregularities at latitudes above the equatorial anomaly region within 15 degrees of the magnetic equator thru our analysis of a few examples of raw data from Osan, Korea. We then began to reduce and analyze data from Puerto Rico and Hawaii using 136 MHz scintillation data taken during both high and low solar flux years. At the levels that can be noted peak to peak excursions of 15-20 dB there is considerable activity.
