Electrical characteristics at 60,000+ ft - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hello all,

I'm interested in finding out more about electrical characteristics at very high altitudes. I know that there are some studies about radiation effects on circuits in space, but I haven't encountered any other electrical related concerns at high altitudes.

Does anyone know of any resources to start?

I've been searching scholar.google.com to find any interesting things. So far, I have found none.

Differences include:
1. Breakdown voltage - if you're running high voltages, this might matter.
2. Teensy difference in dielectric constant - virtually never matters.

Good Luck!
