Abstract Some questions about the propagation of radio waves around the earth are discussed. They concern successively: 1. 1) an extension of Sommerfeld's ϱ-formula, applicable to the curved earth, 2. 2) a reduction of Maxwell's vector equations to a scalar wave equation in the case of a spherically symmetric medium, 3. 3) the reduction of the field corresponding to orthodox tropospheric refraction to the field existing without refraction, 4. 4) a geometric-optical derivation of the attenuation… CONTINUE READING
