Kharkov IS Radar
- Vitaly I. Taran (Kharkov Polytechnical Institute)
The Kharkov incoherent scatter radar is operated by the Institute of Ionosphere with support from the National Academy of Science and the Ministry of Education of the Ukraine.
The Kharkov incoherent scatter radar is located at (49.7N, 36.3E; 97 m above mean sea level) in Ukraine. Operations started around 1981. There are 2 antennas, a zenith antenna and a steerable antenna, but both are assigned the same kinst of 45, and the elevation angle will determine which is being used.
The data can be used under the 'Rules of the Road' - ie, informing us at an early stage of the work and offering us a cooperation request at the publication stage.
