Abstract : Propagation data were obtained from a stepped, high-frequency, oblique incidence sounder operated on a transequatorial path between NAVCOMMSTA Guam and NAVCOMMSTA Harold E. Holt, North West Cape, Australia, during the period from August 1968 to August 1969. The propagation data were reduced and analyzed, and used for a comparison of the predicted maximum usable frequencies (MUF) and the maximum observed frequencies (MOF). (Author)
