In this report some back features of the performance of a two frequency reflectometer used as a diagnostic for random plasma fluctuations are studied. Using a realistic and tractable model for the plasma fluctuations we derived some analytical results for correlation and crosscorrelation functions for the temporally varying phase of the reflected signals. Numerical simulations were performed to illustrate the practical applicability of the basic ideas of the reflectometer. The studies were carried out mainly for incoming electromagnetic waves in ordinary polarization.
