A low-power burst communication system has been designed and tested, utilizing the intermittent propagation path provided by ionized meteor trails. A test circuit has been installed between Bozeman, Mont. (Montana State College), and Palo Alto, Calif. Details of the burst control techniques and storage devices used to handle the intermittent information flow are discussed along with the over-all system design.
