Radio propagation and associated meteorological measurements, made by the Electrical Engineering Research Laboratory of the University of Texas during April, 1946, on a path from Gila Bend to Sentinel in the Arizona desert, show that, for meteorological conditions that could be represented by a linear M curve, the magnitude and phase of the field resulting from propagation over a 27-mile path on 3 cm could be calculated on the basis of a direct wave, and one reflected from a surface tangent to the actual profile at the point of reflection. Apparent reflection coefficients between 0.3 and 0.8 were found for desert sand on 3 cm for this path.
