Introduction - Stuart Weston AUT, New Zealand

Hello all from New Zealand.

I am Stuart Weston an M.Phil Student at Auckland University of Technology researching Radio Astronomy VLBI Modelling.

The SID monitor has arrived safe and sound in the Land of the Long White Cloud.

My mate Tim Natush is currently sourcing some wire for the antenna from the electronics lab ( see if they miss a 100m) :-)

The receiver has been connected to the same PC that we use for Radio Jove monitoring. It is an old PIII DELL with Windows XP, bumped the memory to the max 512MB. Couple of disks one for the OS (8GB) and the other for Radio Jove and SID (20GB). Seem's to be handling it no problem with noise down the wire.

So I await my mate Tim to turn up with the wire and we will be online and cooking.

UPDATE: Tim has managed to relieve the electronics lab of a couple 100m of copper wire. So I hope we will have our antenna up this w/e and data being collected.
