108-Second Average Modulated Signal Strength


Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1978-08-13 to 1987-03-28


This data set contains modulated radio data, at 108-second resolution. The data pertain to solar type III radio bursts. The S dipole antenna lies in the spin plane; the Z dipole lies along the spacecraft spin axis. Measurements were made in 12 frequency channels, between 30 and 1980 kHz, in each of two bandwidths, 10 kHz and 3 kHz. The complete sequence was covered in 108 seconds. Parameters included are time, various S and Z sample averages for 12 frequency channels, mode, spacecraft GSE coordinates, and Z dipole configuration. Data sets 78-079A-10E and 78-079A-10F are similar, but at 1.5 seconds resolution, and -10E has been analyzed (despun) to yield source longitude and elevation angles.
