rfihilltop- make .pdf files (images or spectra) of hilltop rfi monitor data.


rfihilltop {-h -s -f freq -n Ndaystoplot -p daysperPage  -o Outputfile} yymmddStart



  • -h                      output help message and exit  
  • -s                      output daily spectral averages. The default is dynamic spectra.
  • -f  freqMhz        Freq band (in Mhz) to output. This will select the closest hilltop monitoring band that includes this freq, The default is 1325.
  • -n NdaysToPlot number of days to plot (starting at yymmddStart). The default is 8.
  • -p daysPerPage number of days on each page. The default is the smaller of 8 and  NdaysToPlot.
  • -o outputFile      name of output file. The default is rfiimg.pdf  (or rfispc.pdf for spectra).

      Plot multiple days of rfi hilltop data from one frequency band. By default the program generates dynamic spectra (-s will plot
    daily spectral averages). Data is plotted starting with yymmdd1stDay (this is the 1 parm you have to enter). The user can specify the number of days (-n)
    and how many days per page to plot (-p).
    The output is sent to rfiimg.pdf (for dynamic spectra) or
    rfispc.pdf (for daily averages). Both of these are in the current directory.
    You can change the output file with -o option

    rfihilltop is a script that calls idl which then does all of the processing. The shell script executes the idl routine: immultiday()





       Since rfihilltop uses idl, it probably runs on Solaris and Linux.
