SuperSID

Monday 23 February 2015, by Baptiste Cecconi

SuperSID is a SARA (Society of Amateur Radio Astronomy) project to observe Sudden Ionospheric Disturbances (SID).

The SuperSID kit is composed of an antenna and a receiver, tuned around 20 kHz. The antenna is a simple conductive cable that must be mounted on a non conductive support to form a coil. The principle of SID is described here.
