The Australian Defense Force’s (ADF’s) High Frequency (HF) communication network is soon to be replaced by a modernized system. Characterization of electrical noise at the receiver sites proposed for the new system is crucial to its performance. Consequently receiver site noise will be measured under the HF Modernization implementation contract that was awarded to Boeing Australia Ltd. Unfortunately the utility of the noise measurements is constrained by the uncertainties of both the ionosphere and atmosphere. This paper discusses some of the issues related to the methodology for measuring the noise and exposes some unresolved issues. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
