Abstract:

The operational performance of the ANFPS-95 was degraded by the appearance of an enhanced noise which occurred in conjunction with the backscatter. The present paper describes the experimental attempt to identify that component of the noise which could arise from near range phenomena. For 23 MHz, the cause is due primarily to line-of-sight meteor trail reflections, while for lower operating frequencies there are indications of spreading of surface wave clutter by antenna vibration.
