VLF (3-30 kHz) radio waves propagate with little attenuation within the Earth-ionosphere waveguide. There are numerous factors that determine waveguide propagation conditions such as ionospheric free electron density and the conductivity of the Earth’s surface along the propagation path. This paper examines how modifications of these factors alter the propagation of the VLF waves.
