Application of wave guide propagation to selection of transmitter power and frequency

This paper is concerned with developing reasonable criteria for the selection of frequency and power for very low and low-frequency (VLF/LF) transmitting stations. The approach uses a wave guide model for low-frequency propagation and accounts for the variability of the ionosphere. A sample problem involving a hypothetical transmitter is described.
