Radio spectrometers of the CALLISTO type to observe solar flares have been distributed to nine locations around the globe. The instruments observe automatically, their data is collected every day via internet and stored in a central data base. A public web-interface exists through which data can be browsed and retrieved. The nine instruments form a network called e-CALLISTO. It is still growing in the number of stations, as redundancy is desirable for full 24 h coverage of the solar radio… 

CALLISTO spectrometer for solar radio bursts monitoring in Chiangmai

Solar radio bursts are important phenomena for studying solar activities such as flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs). A worldwide network is ∼ 90 stations, known as, e-CALLISTO, has been
