HF Radio Propagation Manual

The HF Radio Propagation Manual provides an introduction to the ionosphere, HF radio propagation and solar-terrestrial activity. Based on the HF Radio Propagation Course, the manual covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • Formation, regions and variations of the ionosphere
  • Reflection and absorption of HF radio waves
  • Skip zones, propagation modes and hops
  • Solar disturbances and the solar cycle
  • The effects of solar disturbances: SIDs, PCAs, magnetic and ionospheric storms
  • Examples and the use of SWS predictions and services

If you would like to order the HF Radio Propagation Manual, please email sws_sales@bom.gov.au advising the number of manuals required and address (within Australia specify town/suburb and state, elsewhere, specify country). An order form, manual pricing and postage costs will be emailed to you.
