Abstract : The results of a brief observation period with an M-33 X-band radar are reported. Data presented are those obtained by pointing the radar in a fixed vertical position and observing the radar echoes on film and of tracks of invisible airborne targets. This research attempts to set limits of signal strength to be expected at the radar for various atmospheric phenomena and to establish a probability of seeing a particular type return. (Author)
