l AAEV: Aspect angle effects in the velocity of E-region coherent echoes

l A multi-instrument campaign involving EISCAT, CUTLASS (special mode), and

STARE. The requested time is overscheduled and cancellation will occur depending on geophysical conditions (moderate to disturbed). The AAEV campaign is coordinated with the CRASE experiment so that if one is cancelled then another one will be run or vice versa. Altogether (AAEV+CRASE) 46 hours are requested while only 34 will be used.@@@
