Abstract:

Vertical soundings were recorded hourly with the Digisonde 256 and the Artist facility during the period of September 1, 1990 to Sept. 6, 1992. The Digisonde 256 worked perfectly and only few hourly records are missing. Interruptions of the recording were mainly due to short mains failures and in Dec. 91 to installation of a GPS card and new related software in order to supply a precise pulse each second from satellites. This enables the success of two oblique sounding campaigns. Moreover, data of quarter-hourly ionogram were also recorded for some periods.
