This thesis describes the application of VLSI devices to channel evaluation and communication techniques over ionospheric radio paths. Digital signal processing techniques using microprocessors and charge coupled devices are described in detail. A novel method for observing interference and fading patterns on HF channels is described. Error control coding schemes and digital modulation techniques are combined in a design for an adaptive modem for use over HF radio links. Results of narrow-band interference measurements, error patterns and coding performance are presented.
