High-frequency (HF) radars are operated in the 3-30 MHz frequency band and are known to cover ranges up to some thousand kilometers. Sky wave over-the-horizon radars (OTHR) utilize reflection by the ionosphere, but they require a transmit power up to 100 kilowatts. Especially for oceanographic applications, low power high frequency surface wave radar (HFSWR) systems have been developed, which use ground wave propagation along the salty ocean surface. The WERA HF radar system transmits a power… CONTINUE READING
