An improved technique for the reduction of an HF oblique ionogram to an ionospheric true height profile is presented. It is based on a more accurate generalization of the Breit-Tuve theorem to curved earth and ionosphere geometries. The improvement over previous methods is demonstrated by means of calculations on known cases.
