Abstract : The results of one year's observations of the amplitude of 16 kc signals from GBR Rugby received at Scott Base, Antarctica, are discussed. The diurnal variation suggests that the signals are received over the long great circle path. There is slight evidence that the attenuation of this path during daylight hours increases with geomagnetic activity. (Author)
