In this paper the incoherent scattering of an electromagnetic wave by free electrons is examined theoretically. Under the assumption that the electrons have a Maxwellian velocity distribution, the scattered power and its frequency spectrum are calculated. The applicability of these results to ionospheric and laboratory plasmas is discussed.
