Abstract: The research flight facility of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is engaged in flying in and around all types of weather phenomena. Since the summer of 1969 the RFF has had a Tracor 7007B Omega System installed on at least one of the RFF aircraft. Further, since August 1970, the Omega information has been digitized and recorded on the aircraft digital recording system. The National Hurricane Research Laboratory of NOAA has been evaluation the information collected. Due to the severe weather encountered in hurricanes, snow storms, and around thunderstorms, it has become apparent that certain adverse weather definitely affects the operation of airborne Omega. This paper will describe these effects utilizing both E-and H-field antenna.
