|Title:||Satellite Radio Beacon Studies at Delhi: Some Special Features|
|Authors:||Tyagi, Tuhi Ram|
|Abstract:||At the National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi, satellite radio beacon studies have been actively pursued since early sixties when transmissions from Russian satellite COSMOS-V were first recorded in 1962-63. Some of the special results of these studies such as determination of mean field height, explanation of time-lag in the occurrence of quasi-transverse (Q-T) point at spaced frequencies, and variation of electron content, are described. Some space applications such as evaluation of refraction errors in satellite ranging and position fixing, and monitoring of tropospheric events using beacon technique are also mentioned. Suggestions are also made for future satellite beacon studies, with particular emphasis on Indian subcontinent conditions.|
