Examples of Monitoring

I use the monitoring function of the AR5000RA-software mainly for studying ionospheric radio wave propagation and natural radio frequency emissions at VLF, LF and MF, for examples click below-mentioned links.

For long term observations the power consumption of the measuring system should be paid attention to. My setup involves a laptop computer with a low power Intel U4100 Dual Core 1.3 GHz as cpu. The hard disk and screen of the laptop will be switched off after 5 min. The gained samples will be stored onto a 4 GB SD card. This system consumes 38 W/h. This is too much for a long lasting monitoring program but can be accepted for a couple of days of monitoring.
