Abstract : The AN/FPS-118 analytical model for the Over the Horizon Backscatter (OTH-B) radar, developed by General Electric Company for the frequency management and the coordinate registration of the radar operation, was installed at the PL computer center and was tested for accuracy. The errors in the computer logic as well as in documentation were identified and appropriate corrections for Improving the performance of the model were carried out and tested at PL; they are recommended for implementation at the radar sites in this report.
