Abstract

This paper discusses the accuracy limitations of the conventional ionosonde and techniques which may be used to improve it and at the same time reduce analysis effort. Add-on digital equipment is described which may easily be attached to any ionosonde to improve its performance at a low cost. Results are presented which illustrate the accuracy and advantages of the system.
