Paper Abstract

This paper is devoted to the study of the possibilities of using reflected signal distortion characteristics in diagnosing the propagation medium. In vertical-incidence ionospheric soundings in the high-frequency range, the derivative of the reflectance modulus is one of the measured characteristics of distortions. The paper demonstrates the possibility of using this characteristic to separate the situations of scattering from small-scale irregularities and interference of signals caused by large-scale ionospheric irregularities.
