Cheyenne Mountain Tropospheric Propagation Data February - March 1954

Albrecht P. Barsis; B. R. Bean; K. O. Hornberg

Abstract: This report describes tropospheric propagation measurements taken over the Cheyenne Mountain paths on frequencies between 92 and 1046 Mc during February, 1954. The results of the measurements are given in terms of cumulative distributions of hourly medians (in units of basic transmission loss), diurnal variations and interdecile range of hourly medians of transmission loss, and dependence of the above quantities on the angular distance 0. Results of meteorological measurements on the 500-foot tower at Haswell, Colorado, are also shown together with radiosonde data obtained at Denver, Colorado, and Dodge City, Kansas, during the recording period. A general description of the weather during the measurement period is also given.
