The dynamics of radio signal propagating through the single-hop vertical
ionospheric path was analyzed using
the experimental time series. Correlation
dimension, Lyapunov exponents spectrum for signal and noise components are
evaluated. Attractor reconstruction for the weakly disturbed ionosphere is carried out.
Key words: radio wave propagation, ionospheric communications channel, noise, phase surface, attractor.
