Abstract
This report is a continuation of an ongoing assessment of using higher frequencies, in particular the frequency modulation (FM) band, in order to detect linear conductors. Reradiated fields arising from transmitters of opportunity, such as commercial FM stations, were measured using a portable spectrum analyzer (SA). In this way, more spectral information about the received signal, with the conjecture that its superior resolution bandwidth, would allow better discrimination of the signal from the noise. The sensor style is described and the experimental plan and results are presented, along with a discussion as to the overall feasibility of this detection scheme.
