Abstract : A backscatter program was initiated because of the reports on the magnetic duct experiment of the central radio propagation laboratory. Although the long-delayed echoes of this experiment were not detected, there were found a number of other delayed echoes which merit interpr tation. Experiments were conducted at various times of day and night, and also during 24-hour periods. A theoretical explanation is given for ducted propagation along striated irregularities in the ionosphere. (Author)
