The features of the influence of the ionosphere on the propagation of decimeter-wave radio waves are studied, taking into account the curvature of the propagation medium. Single-layer and two-layer models of the ionosphere are considered, both including and not including large-scale inhomogeneities of cold ionospheric plasma. Estimates of the angle of the Faraday rotation and phase incursion for various models are obtained. The effect of ionospheric inhomogeneities on the results of remote sensing of the Earth from space is investigated.
