Abstract: This report is the second in a series of reports which describe the development of a wideband HF noise/interference mode. The model is based on measured data and is suitable for implementation in a wideband HF channel simulator. The measured data, analyses of the first–order statistics of the data, and a proposed noise/interference model based upon those analyses were discussed in Part I of this series. The present report, Part II of the series, describes analyses of selected higher–order statistics of the data: the autocorrelation function and pulse width and pulse spacing distributions. Examples of these quantities generated from the model are compared with measured data, and refinements of the model based upon analyses of the higher–order statistics are discussed.
