High Frequency Radar
High Frequency Radar for Measuring Ionospheric Propagation Conditions
Developed for monitoring HF propagation conditions.
HF digitizing receiver.
- DC-30 MHz
- DDS tuning, 0.1 Hz resolution
- 15 KHz of instantaneous bandwidth
- IQ demodulation
- 2 channel, 16 bit digitizers
- GPS time controlled
- Motorola DSP 56302 processor
This is a high frequency (HF) radar receiver which digitizes WWV time broadcasts in order to monitor ionospheric propagation conditions. After digitizing the time broadcast, the receiver then stores the data on a host computer. This project was developed with the Physics and Astronomy Department at Western Kentucky University.
