Abstract We report here preliminary results of a VHF radar experiment designed to monitor atmospheric winds and turbulence continuously over periods of many days. The radar system used in this experiment is a prototype of a much larger system under development and uses an average transmitted power of about 200 W and a 100 m × 100 m dipole array. With this system it is possible to observe winds and turbulence parameters regularly to about 19 km using a height resolution of 2.2 km. Similar… CONTINUE READING
