Abstract : Beacon transmissions from the semi-geostationary satellite Intelsat 2F-1 and the geostationary satellite Intelsat 2F-2 are used for studies of the high latitude ionosphere. Summer-daytime latitudinal variations of the electron content, geomagnetic storm effects and unusual propagation effects in the subauroral zone ionosphere are studied. (Author)
