llaflected Signal

Sky waves arriving via ionospheric reflection make it possible to receive short wave broadcasts from stations located in other countries, thousands of miles away. Sky waves sometimes also make it possible for you to receive AM broadcast stations at night that are hundreds or thousands of miles away. Ionospheric reflection, however, seldom occurs at microwave frequencies.
