We had time to sit down and take a good look at the data coming out of the Sudden Ionospheric Detector 2 today and it matched up pretty well with another outside source.
The data is for the 24 hours starting on Monday 2013 February 25th at 00:00 UTC
The external comparator was the Moore Observatory based out of the University of Louisville in the US
The matching events seem to be the peaks around 02:00, 06:00, 12:00 and 21:00 UTC. Two of the events seem to be sunrise and sunset.
The downside is that we still seem to have a lot of local noise, and not a lot of differentiation between it and the actual signals that come through.
We have two more variables to alter. One is to readjust the antenna again, to see which way it is most sensitive to the transmitting site over the horizon in Cutler, Maine.
The other is to crank up the gain some more to see if the signal will seperate out better from the background noise.
