AbstractTelecommunications via ionospheric reflection of radio signals of ground-based transmitters are a traditional area. However, this technique is still in use in telecommunications, broadcasting, etc. Various problems have not yet been solved and some of them were studied in Working Group 3 (WG3). Structure of WG 3 and the terms of reference of its four working packages are described in the introductory paper by Zolesi and Cander (2004). Here we describe the main results achieved in COST 271 in the following areas: i) large-scale fluctuations of planetary and gravity waves; ii) development of a new type of HF channel simulator; iii) geomagnetic storm effects on the F1-region ionosphere; iv) the sporadic E-layer and spread-F phenomena; v) the HF radio wave propagation over northerly paths; vi) how to increase the bit rate in ionospheric radio links. In general, substantial progress was achieved but some problems remain open for future investigations.
