JP1.34 Application of spread spectrum radio for real-time data transmission from mesonet and other observing systems

Monday, 20 June 2005
Loren D. White, Jackson State University, Jackson, MS; and E. Matlack and J. Finney

The challenges of retrieving real-time data from mesonets often significantly constrain the budgets and selection of sites. The experience in Mississippi has been that spread spectrum radio provides a cost-effective solution when a nearby internet connection is available. We will discuss the application to the developing Mississippi Mesonet, as well as to other local observing platforms. The other platforms may include portable field experiment weather stations, state-owned anemometers on television transmission towers, and other developing micronets.
