23rd Conference on IIPS


Open Radar Data Acquisition (ORDA) Calibration Analysis

Robert W. Macemon, RS Information Systems, Norman, OK; and N. K. Patel, A. D. Free, G. W. Jim, and J. R. Cory

The WSR-88D Open Radar Data Acquisition (ORDA) upgrade was completed in September 2006. The new ORDA system improves calibration consistency for individual sites and aligns data returns across the NWS radar network. This paper will review ORDA calibration techniques, discuss measurement frequency, show individual site consistency of calibration using actual field data, and compare data quality across the network of WSR-88D radars.
