  • Abstract The ‘near-field’ (or Fresnel zone) properties of the Arecibo spherical reflector and 430 MHz line feed have been investigated along with the influence of these properties on incoherent backscatter determinations of lower ionosphere electron concentrations. Previous attempts to measure or estimate these effects have been plagued by either inaccurate techniques or lack of clear documentation regarding the procedures employed. We thus review the form of the classical radar equation used… CONTINUE READING
