Radio Equipment

This page contains information on the radio equipment available in the Teaching labs, T231.

Summer project to-do list (temporary)

  • Sort through old equipment, deciding what to keep-complete?
  • Catalogue cables and equipment-complete?
  • Test cables running to, and antennae on, the roof-complete?
  • Complete wiki, to include specifications of all radio equipment
  • Construct and connect a rack containing all radio equipment
  • add roof map-complete.
  • run new power cables to roof
  • complete a map showing the location of the antennae on the roof-complete?
