We have previously demonstrated that carrier phase measurements of the ubiquitous AM broadcast signals can be used for instantaneous radiolocation. The positioning accuracy, however, depends on how well the signal propagation characteristics can be modeled. In this paper, the signal propagation issues relevant to radiolocation are reviewed and empirical… (More)
