Risks derived from the Space Weather (ESP)

Report presented in November 2010 to the Spanish General Directorate of Civil Protection and Emergencies (DGPCE), on the occasion of the Technical Congress on Space Weather. The article provides a description of the Space Weather phenomena and an analysis of the risks for people and several technological systems, among them the HF radio communication systems. The article also provides a description of the observation and early warning systems currently available in several countries.

Adcock/Watson-Watt Radio Direction Finding

Adcock/Watson-Watt Radio Direction Finding

Technical description of the radio direction finding systems type Adcock/Watson-Watt, based on the employ of four monopololes with an additional sense monopole to avoid ambiguities. Those systems are commonly used in military environments (SIGINT), radio navigation and radio direction finding during emergencies, in the MF, HF, VHF and UHF radio bands. The theoretical explanation is backed by radiation patterns made with 4Nec2 and the analysis of the demodulated signals using a function plotting software.
