Plasma antennas are just as effective as metal antennas. They can transmit, receive, and reflect radio waves just as well as metal antennas. In addition, plasma generated noise does not appear to be a problem.

    The question is considered of how to estimate the parameters of local plasma density fluctuations from reflectometry measurements made by probing the plasma with an extraordinary electromagnetic wave. In the geometrical-optics approximation, a formula is derived that relates the fluctuation...
