The Manastash Ridge Radar Project

The Manastash Ridge Radar Interferometer is a bistatic passive radar system that uses commercial FM broadcasts as a signal source. The system is designed to operate between 88 and 108 MHz in frequency with data collection using multiple receivers synchronized using the Global Positioning System. The radar's function is the study of density irregularities in the ionosphere, primarily those associated with the auroral electrojet. The system may also be used to track aircraft, meteor trails, and other phenomenon.
