RE: Pin point the UO-14 jammer.



James,

You're right!  I completely forgot about that.

Another thing I thought of after the fact was the challenge back then in
making accurate time-tagged doppler measurements.  But with DSP technology
it should be a snap doing this with a low cost sound card.  As I said, times
AND most importantly technology have changed by leaps and bounds!  It should
be a snap for someone who has the time and talents to code something.
Couple this with the idea of local monitoring once the general location of a
jammer has been plotted and you have a winner!

2.  not saying it!

If I'm not mistaken, thats how the SARSAT/COSPAS systems work for getting
the position of the emergency transmitters onboard downed aircraft...so
there's been lots of work refining techniques and software and general
procedures for that.
