Abstract The autocorrelation function is derived for the irregular echo received from an ionosphere with randomly distributed small-scale irregularities when the frequency of transmission is varied. The limits within which this function is valid are established. The phase and amplitude probability distributions of the echo are derived from the auto-correlation function, and are shown to be the same as those of the echo received from a fixed frequency transmission when the ionosphere moves overhead. Finally it is shown that by the use of sweep frequency transmission the drift speed of the ionospheric layer may be determined from a single ground station.
