Cosmic Radio Noise-AGC Levels Plotted on 35-mm Microfilm,merged with Ionograms

NSSDCA ID: SORA-00008

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

Time span: 1962-09-29 to 1970-11-30

Description

This data set, provided by the principal investigator, consists of the sounder automatic gain control (AGC) level plotted vs time, displayed as plot lines on the ionograms of data set 62-049A-01A. Since the sounder receiver is a sweep-frequency receiver, the AGC data are in effect plotted vs frequency. The frequency resolution is relatively good, but the flux resolution is very poor due to the restricted plot height. These data are also available, with the flux displayed on an expanded scale, from the principal investigator, Dr. H. G. James, Communications Research Centre, Dept of Communications, P.O. Box 11490, Station H, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, K2H 8S2.
