[Linrad] Re: Feature Request

Hi Thomas,

Hmmm, SID and tweaks require quite different displays and etc might
be yet another different thing;-)

For SID?

I would suggest you monitor 9 to 180 kHz or perhaps a little more.
Enable the network and run half a dozen of instances of Linrad.
Select half a dozen of stations at suitable distances over the
frequency range, place the S-meter graph in the upper left part of 
the windoe and reduce the window sizes so you see only the S-meter 
graphs for all the different stations.

You might have the signal level of the carriers of half a dozen stations
for the latest 12 hours on screen and a SID should show a sudden change
on all of them.

Another thing could be to monitor the frequency at extreme resolution.
I would guess a SID would cause a doppler shift.

For tweeks I think what I wrote previously would apply. If you
want better time resoultion you might want a higher power of
sin for the fft1 window. (Transfoems would overlap a little more.)

Previously I suggested that you should set the fft1 bandwidth
to 15 Hz. That was incorrect. Set 30 Hz if you use a sine squared

Yes. There are several parameters to play with. Record raw data so you
can look at the same sequence with different processinmg parameters
to learn whar effects different parameter settings will have.

Very good. If you find something that seems reproducible I might be able
to reproduce it here. Then I might be able to prevent the problem or
perhaps to make Linrad exit with an error message that would help to
eliminate the problem. ("Make sure that chron is not running" or similar...)
