The time and frequency selective behavior of a fading HF ionospheric reflection channel is considered in this paper. Both deterministic and random spatial and temporal variations of the ionosphere and the troposphere are included in determining the multipath delay and Doppler frequency spreading of a channel in which the signals are reflected off of a multilayered ionosphere. An example which illustrates the diffuseness of the multipath and Doppler spectra under typical propagation conditions is given.
