Abstract : The radiation pattern of the 4 x 8 element array of the Arecibo HF heater antenna was measured with a Digisonde onboard AFGL's KC 135 airplane. With seven flight tracks over the antenna array at an altitude of 8840 m it was verified that the radiation pattern of the heater antenna is in good agreement with the calculations. The measurements were conducted at 5.1 MHz. (Author)
