exception handling
Exception handling
  • Geostationary satellites between Moon and Earth
  • Sun within tracking path during new moon phase
  • Terrestrial man made noise
  • High noise temperature below 15° elevation
  • Rainfall increases atmospheric attenuation drastically
  • System failures (timing, pointing and other „Bill Gates-effects“)
  • Imperfect operator...
  • Radio-refraction not yet corrected (only optical)!
analysis disc temperature
Analysis disc temperature
  • Antenna temperature: Ta = Tref*[10^(dB/10)-1], where Tref~94K
  • Compensation LNC-dustcover loss: c=0.1dB
  • Compensation atmospheric loss: a0=0.2dB...0.24dB...1.5dB (rain)
  • Compensation elevation effect: a=a0^[sin(*/180)^-1]
  • Evaluation proper antenna temperature. Tp=Ta* c* a
  • Evaluation antenna directivity with a sun transit measurement -> D
  • Evaluation antenna beam solid angle: a=(4* )/D ²
  • Evaluation moon disc area (~solid angle): m= *(/2)²
  • Evaluation moon brightness temperature: Tm=Tp* a/ m
  • Filtering with smoothed mean method by 9 hours observation time
  • Data approximation by a 6th order polynom
estimation of tref
Estimation of Tref

1. Theoretical, due to noise figure (preamp) + ohmic losses(cover):

2. Solar radio noise (LEAR) as a reference:

3. Cold sky/horizon:

Average:

observation parameter
Observation parameter
  • Observationtime: 7.1.2001-8.3.2001; 276 hours; 248657 samples
  • Sample rate: 5digit/4sec
  • Observationmode: beam-switching (6° resp. 8°) x 90´´
  • 1  (antenna temperature raw data): 0.5 Kelvin
  • 1  (moon disk temperature raw data): 22 Kelvin
  • 1  (moon disk temperature integrated data): 22 K/9 < 10 K (4%)
  • Mean disk temperature: 213 Kelvin
  • SNR signal to noise ratio: typically 8.6 dB
  • Estimation of temperature lag: t ~ 5 days
  • Observing frequency: 10.83 GHz = 2.77 cm wavelength
  • Observing bandwidth: 220 KHz
  • Integration time: pre=0.2sec, post=9h
