Abstract : ;Contents: Reflection of radio waves from a plane surface; Reflection of radio waves from rough surfaces; Reflection of radio waves from surfaces with random roughnesses. Law of the distribution of reflected signals; Statistical characteristics of quadrature components of signals reflected from a randomly rough surface; Specific effective area of the reflection of statistically rough surfaces at sighting angles close to the vertical line; Statistical characteristics of the phase, amplitude and spectrum of the power of reflected signals when modulation of the radiated signal is absent; Statistical characteristics of some parameters of modulated signals reflected from a statistically rough surface.
