Abstract : For two years the Ionospheric Drift System at Billerica, Massachusetts, has been in full operation, including amplitude and phase measurements of pulse soundings at 2.35 MHz. A complete technical description of the system is given in AD-645 030. During 1966 locking of the phase reference to one antenna was improved. We changed to recording of the absolute phase of one antenna and the relative phases of the remaining two.
