We solve the problem of determination of the local inductance of the ionosphere, which is a parameter entering a two-dimensional telegraph equation. Day- and nighttime models of the ionosphere at altitudes from 0 to 2000 km for different solar activity are presented. It is shown that the resonance structure of the local inductance is formed by interference of reflections from the upper and lower ionosphere at altitudes above 1000 km and below 300 km, respectively. We demonstrate that reflections from the upper layers of the ionosphere disappear at frequencies higher than 8 Hz.
