The purpose of this experiment is to examine the effectiveness and practicality of electrically short antennas using ground wave propagation, signal processing, and digital techniques and protocols under conditions of low effective radiated power.

The experiment will investigate propagation of ground wave daytime mode conversion, ionosphere nighttime mode conversion, the effects of low power on ground dipoles, and the application of models to forecast radio propagation conditions in the LF Band.

The applicant proposes the use of amplitude-shift keying and frequency-shift keying methods, horizontal electric dipole antennas, and Transmitter Power Output below 5 watts.
