Ionospheric Channel Modeling and Estimation

Abstract The goal is to provide accurate measurement of the channel between a ground source and a receiving satellite.

The effects of the the ionosphere for ground to space propagation for radio waves in the 3-30 MHz HF band is an unstudied subject.

The effects of the ionosphere on radio propagation is a long studied subject, the primary focus has been ground to ground by means of ionospheric reflection and space to ground corrections of ionospheric distortions of GPS.

Because of the plasma properties of the ionosphere there is a strong dependence on the frequency of use.

GPS L1 1575.42 MHz and L2 1227.60 MHz are much less effected than the 3-30 MHz HF band used for skywave propagation.

The channel between the ground transmitter and the satelli... (more)
