Abstract : The report presents the results of four major experiments involved in the Expanded Little IDA (ELIDA) Program. The objective of this program is the collection and analysis of HF propagation data that will aid in the design and operation of OHD systems. The data discussed was collected over two propagation paths: (1) Thule, Greenland to Central New York, and (2) Coco Solo, Panama Canal Zone to Central New York. Data on mode reliability, mode loss, spectrum and noise/interference are presented and discussed. (Author)
