Abstract : The role was studied of scattering by turbulent inhomogeneities of the troposphere on long-range tropospheric propagation of radiowaves. The effect of other propagation mechanisms was excluded. The idea of the method consisted in formulating experiments to study radiowave scattering under large angles by using antennas with narrow directivity patterns (approximately 40 min.). (Author)
