Abstract : Moon-reflected signals 150.6 MHz were received on 31 days for approximately 273 hours during the period July 1, 1967 to September 30, 1967. In addition, signals at 413.25 were received for approximately 52 hours. The 150.6 MHz signals were received on 606 days for 5203 hours from September 12, 1963 to September 30, 1967. The strip charts have been read out, and corrected Faraday rotation and total columnar electron content have been plotted for all of the days of operation. These results are available in Atlas form for all of the days of operation through 1966. The data for all days of operation in 1967 have been machine plotted. Seasonal averages are presented for late 1966 data and for all of the 1967 data through September 1967. These averages indicate the marked increase due to increased solar activity and the lower summer time level. (Author)
