Trans-Equatorial High Frequency Link Between Mauritius And Europe

KMS Soyjaudah

Abstract


High-Frequency signal propagation occurs by a number of different mechanisms. Together with ionospheric  effects these propagation mechanisms cause the signal to undergo various distortions. Although these effects  occur more severely in the trans-equatorial path, little data exists that provides information on the size and rate at which they occur over these paths. An opportunity has arisen to set up a transequatorial HF link between Europe and Mauritius. In this paper, the initial purpose of setting up this link, the techniques  employed, the early results obtained and further works are presented.
