A STUDY OF WAVELENGTH DEPENDENCE OF TRANSHORIZON RADIO PROPAGATION
CORNELL UNIV ITHACA NY CENTER FOR RADIOPHYSICS AND SPACE RESEARCH
The investigations of uhf and microwave transhorizon radio propagation carried out under this contract are summarized briefly. These include studies of fading, of wavelength dependence, of median diversity effect, or anomalous propagation over irregular terrain, and of information theoretic analysis of troposcatter circuits. The greater portion of this report is devoted to those experiments most recently completed, which were aimed specifically at the determination of wavelength dependence in the 1-10 Gcs range, of the variability of this dependence, and of its relation, if any, to largescale weather patterns.
