Paper Abstract

The work is devoted to experimental check of operative technique for calculation of F2-layer parameters in path's midpoint (critical frequency and peak height) using oblique sounding data. In this work experimental data obtained in 2003-2006 by FMCW-ionosounder in Irkutsk (over different paths with different length and orientation) were used. The IRI data and experimental vertical sounding data (nearest to path's midpoint) were used for verifying of calculated values. Experimental oblique sounding data recalculation into the path's midpoint parameters was performed on the basis of the modified Smith method without consideration of Earth's magnetic field.
