AbstractThe presentation deals with one of the most popular technique to investigate the terrestrial ionosphere: the vertical radio sounding. The basic elements of the radar theory are explained starting from the envelope radar up to more sophisticated techniques of the coded radars. Antennas design elements and problems are highlighted along with the most common solutions. Then the principles of the ionospheric measurements are reported from the ionogram to the ionospheric parameters and to the density profile. A detailed analysis of the ionosonde system installed at Tucumán Ionospheric Observatory, Argentina, is performed.
