FORWARD SCATTER OF RADIO WAVES

National Bureau of Standards

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Forward scatter-a recently discovered mode of radio propagation-promises to extend greatly the limits of long-distance communication. Through application of scatter propagation, new frequency channels can be opened up to long-range use, new path lengths can be utilized, and reliable service can be provided far beyong the line-of-sight limit in the extreme high-frequency ranges. Both industry and the armed services anticipate savings through elimination of many relay stations.
