The solution of a scientific problem of determination the informational reliability of the digital channel of troposphere communication with the help of adaptive methods of signal control is currently of great interest. Adaptive methods of signal identification at the output of an adaptive antenna and receiver using signal control and inter-comparison are considered. At the same time the conditions of signal distribution are fixed which allows automatic determination of the informational reliability of the digital channels for the station of digital tropospheric communication.
