  • RiverSonde was not Transmitting

    Posted on June 17th, 2010 admin No comments

    I spoke with Hector at Codar yesterday and we got the RiverSonde working.  I had turned off the transmitter when we were setting up the system because it is not good to transmit while the antenna is not connected to the amplifier.  This is what the spectra should look like.

    I learned yesterday that positive currents are to the right when behind the antenna.  The antenna that transmits the signal is antenna 2.  while behind the antenna, from left to right it is antenna 1, 2 then 3.

    Here are the correct setting for Receiver controller.  This application transmits the radio signal.

    This is a simplified version of SeaSonde Controller.
