Abstract Radio echoes from the ionosphere are Doppler shifted in frequency due to horizontal and vertical motions. Fourier analysis of the phase and amplitude of the received signal may be used to give angular and height resolution. It is shown that the angular resolution is the angular size of the first Fresnel zone and that for D-region echoes, taken as an example, the height resolution is significantly better than the usual method of pulse separation.
