This paper reports the first use of a multifrequency range imaging (RIM) technique for observing E-region field-aligned irregularities (FAIs) in the midlatitude ionosphere. The Middle and Upper atmosphere Radar (MUR; 34.85°N, 136.10°E) was used to conduct experiments with five equally spaced frequencies between 46.25 and 46.75 MHz. Three types of RIM data were examined: data with 13-element binary Barker codes, with 16-element binary complementary codes, and without phase codes. Moreover, two… CONTINUE READING
