MERGE POINT NODES




Dated: 12 July 2019

MERGE POINT NODES
These are MADAR nodes on the MADAR Display that are so close together they appear as one. Some are owned by the same operator.

NODE REGISTRATION DOTS
The white spots that appear on the MADAR Display at madar.site are the Node Registration Dots, and when they are left-clicked the Full Data Block comes up, commonly referred to as the "pop-up". The data displayed is the last minute's data for the node from the datalogger and includes the Node ID, the (current) status, compass heading, trigger (setting), Avg. Ambient (mGa), Standard Deviation (mGa), and (barometric) pressure (in/Hg). The listing ends with the location, sensor ID and (software) version number followed by the Universal Time Code.

DATALOGGER SPREADSHEET
Using the operator's user name and password the op can gain access to the datalogger spreadsheet which displays the one min data per line while in normal status and one per second logging while on alert. The lines are read in reverse order.
 
In the beginning we had nodes by different persons in the same city but at a more obvious distance, but we now have several that are actually within a mile or two.  Boise, Idaho has Node 111 operated by Richard Hawksworth and Node 116 operated by C.K. Haun.  Council Bluffs, IA Node 133 is a little further from Omaha, NE Node 132 but the NRDs appear as one dot until the Map is zoomed in on. The latest example of an MPN is Node 98 which is going in just  SW of Node 148, and both are in North Brook, IL. Bruce Sayer is a friend and colleague of Tim Ayers. 

Mt. Vernon, IN will soon have an MPN about 1.2 miles north of Node 119.

POTENTIAL SCIENTIFIC VALUE
It has always been of interest to have nearby nodes to verify tracking of anomalies and hopefully even show movement of an anomalistic target. For that reason the MADAR Director invested in several nodes with friends and family members in SE Illinois and SW Indiana.  That project involved five nodes, from Norris City, IL to Mt. Vernon, IN to Evansville to Newburgh and then over to Santa Claus, each about 30 miles apart. The MPN going in there soon will be just N of the Mt. Vernon node.

With the MPNs MADAR has a way of increasing its "resolution" and potential for validating an anomaly and correlation with UAP in the area.
