Abstract Two backscatter experiments at Brisbane to investigate the possibility of long-range high-frequency radio propagation by way of exospheric field-aligned ionization produced negative results. The existence of field-aligned irregularities as shown by radar, scintillation and whistler observations is noted. A simple analysis of exospheric propagation based on guiding by field-aligned ionization leads to an estimate of the relative usefulness of the antennae used in the Brisbane experiments and the antenna used by Gallet and Utlaut in a previous investigation. The effective system parameters indicate that if exospheric propagation was detected in the latter case, similar results should have been obtained at Brisbane.
