Noise Power Measurement tool (NPM)


Noise Power Measuring Tool

Jean-Pierre Courjaud F6DZP wrote software to facilitate antenna setup.

The Noise Power Measuring tool (NPM) can be used to measure the sun noise on S-band.

A special version of Orbitron/whispDDE sends commands to the azimuth and elevation motors, providing offsets  from minus 10° to plus 10° from the sun coordinates. The software traces the received noise power. If the result is a beautiful pyramid, the tracking system is well set.
