Abstract Three months' observations obtained at Brisbane of the scintillations of the 20 Mc/s transmissions from Explorer VII have been analysed in detail. The scintillations have a Gaussian distribution of amplitude and a scintillation rate which peaks at 2 c/s. The phenomenon is mainly a night-time one but some slight activity persists into the daylight hours. There is no evidence of a correlation with sporadic-E but the scintillations are found to be associated with both the frequency-spreading and range-spreading types of spread-F. The scintillation activity is found to increase with zenith angle in a manner which can be interpreted in terms of the same system of irregularities, at heights of the order of 200-600 km, producing both the scintillations and spread-F.
