We present the first results of experimental testing of the possibilities of acoustic disturbance of the ionosphere by a controllable ground-based low-power radiator. Detection of ionospheric peturbations of this kind by radiophysical complexes based on the decameter radiotelescope URAN-3 is discussed.
