This thesis examines the over-the-horizon (OTH) communications capability of the SH-60B Seahawk. The LAMPS MkIII communications system incorporates a high frequency (HF) radio in its design to provide reliable two-way voice communications at extended ranges for use during operations that require the helicopter to be below the ship's radio horizon. In addition, the HF radio system is necessary to provide communications with non-LAMPS equipped naval forces and commercial shipping and to provide long-range, sea-air rescue capabilities. Topics addressed with respect to the OTH communication capability of the SH-60B Seahawk are the basics of HF propagation theory, a chronology of events concerning the SH-60B's current HF communications system and an analysis of issues.
