The results of experimental studies of the ionospheric response to artificial acoustic excitation are presented. Acoustic excitation is generated using a ground-based acoustic emitter. Registration of the ionospheric response is carried out using the URAN-3 radio telescope using three methods: scanning, scattering by inhomogeneities and oblique sounding. For data processing methods of wavelet analysis are used.
