Comparison of SID Monitor Results for 8/20/06

In reply to Mike, but in hope that we can share some observations on our observations, I am posting our TLU results with a comparison to the Utah State observations of NML on 8/20/06.

Mike's post of this day should be referenced to the above. The USU data, taken from their website (thank you for sharing), has a flare response almost a factor of 7 larger than ours! Mike's is a couple of times smaller than the TLU data. The noise looks to be roughly the same on these systems (+- 50% at least). Don't really use the TLU data in the above jpeg. It is given for comparison to the USU data. A better scale is used in the earlier post in response to Mike's question.

What did others see? To what extent is the magnitude of the flare response a function of antenna design and to what extent is it a function of antenna locale?

Also in response to Mike's worries, notice that the nighttime measurements, night noise, are greatly different between the two stations. Even the relative location of night to day on the scale is different. I don't even see a strong correlation of ups and downs in the two night noise plots. That might be a neat question to ask for a couple of stations looking at the same xmitter.
