  • Abstract One of the main aims of the LOPES experiment was the evaluation of the absolute amplitudeof the radio signal of air showers. This is of special interest since the radio technique offers the pos-sibility for an independent and highly precise determination of the energy scale of cosmic rays onthe basis of signal predictions from Monte Carlo simulations. For the calibration of the amplitudemeasured by LOPES we used an external source. Previous comparisons of LOPES measurementsand… CONTINUE READING
