The UK incoherent scatter system operates in two modes. The monostatic pulsed system has been in operation since 1968, and a summary of the results obtained in this mode is given. The full multistatic CW system has been operating since September 1972 and among the preliminary results are measurements of the total vector of velocity drift.
