Abstract

The Chelyabinsk meteoroid fall has been used to show that an appropriate ionospheric response can be recorded from signals of satellite radar systems. This can be done using dual-frequency or single-frequency equipment. The recording time of the response commencement has been used to estimate the propagation rate of primary disturbance in the atmosphere.
