This paper describes a low-frequency sensor campaign in Switzerland. Several parallel and circular (spotlight mode) tracks were flown in a monostatic and bistatic configuration with the Swedish radio wave sensors CARABAS-II (transmitting and receiving) and LORA (receiving) in autumn 2007. The bistatic configuration was designed to additionally receive the transversal (vertical) polarization.
