We have now proceeded to the point, where we have successfully transmitted and received signals. However, as this a weather radar experiment, we simply see the signal jumping directly from Tx to Rx. Hence, we are waiting for "good" weather, which in this case means rain.
|First received signal.|
During the installation, we were asked to make proper safety arrangements. I used this possibility to purchase my very first blinking orange light (typically used in professional vehicles and alike). This is to show when the radar is operational and when not. In addition, for amusement, I purchased a "siren" :) !!!
|Safety items and the transmit/receive system.|
We will report further development as soon as we get a proper target!!
