In May 1983, ionospheric heating experiments were conducted using the Jicamarca very high frequency (VHF) radar facility located ∼11 km east of Lima, Peru. Experiments involving high frequency (HF) heating of the lower D-region of the ionosphere were successfully conducted during 1982 using the Arecibo, Puerto Rico HF transmitter located 5km east at Islote, Puerto Rico. These local experiments had characterized the signal radiated from a heated and modulated ionospheric current system near the… CONTINUE READING
