Recording, tallying, and presentation of multiple simultaneous events.

Backdrop.
I have many hobbies, and a few more interests that I don’t follow all the time. It was during the testing of a output RFI filter for my headphone amplifier, that I realized that a few other things were effecting the test results, far more then I had initially thought possible. It appeared that the noise floor of the test equipment appeared to rise and fall randomly, throwing off the day to day adjustments I was attempting to do to the filter.

It was during one of the X-class flairs that I had made the connection. I found out about the flair an hour after it had begone. And within that time, I had measured a test equipment closed-loop test, that had me looking for bad parts in the test equipment.

Now the test was not alarmingly high, tho as far down as I was working in the noise floor, it made measuring the filter's effects impossible to detect.


So now I have an Opportunity.
I need to get data from one set of equipment miles from my location, and somehow combine that data into the results of my local testing equipment designed for a completely different purpose.

I am aware that during gymnastic events, they have four different apparatus platforms spread out across the arena floor, with gymnasts on each of them at the same time. I figured I might learn something if I study how such events are recorded and played back. Unfortunately those events are not covered anywhere as complete as I need my testing to be.

However, it was not a completely useless distraction. There was one set of four videos, where each apparatus was recorded from beginning to end for the one event. If one listens closely at the 'Ambient' sound, it is possible to detect the sound of the Floor Exercise music during the other videos. And thus, IF, I had the desire, I could use that background music to sync up the other there videos to the  Floor Exercise video.

The measurement data from the sound test equipment dose make time stamps of the recording, in the file system of my computer, and not exactly in the measurement data it's self. Using that time stamp of when the test was completed and saved, gives me points of time to go back and look at the data from the Space Weather site.


What have I done the past two years.
I have neglected working directly on headphone amplifier the past two years. In stead I have been going over all my former test results, and comparing them to the Solar Wind data. It is apparent that some filters are not as bad as I had initially thought, and some others are worse then they already appear to be.

I still have not figured out what the ratio of noise-floor to solar-wind is exactly. And I still need to make a ground based system here, to determine just what is actually effecting the test equipment. Unfortunately, there is a delay between SOHO detecting solar activity, and that to reach earth, and the delay changes depending on many factors. Tho Just being aware of when it is a good quiet day to perform tests is enough for my purposes at this time.
