Continuous simultaneous collection from multiple sites over several days.
Potential for semester long decay experiments.
Multiple students simultaneously collect data from antennas located at a remote listening post.
Computer science students tell a remote computer to send a digital signal of their choice. They capture and analyze the signal using a JAVA oscilloscope.
Part one: LabPro is attached to local computer with microphone. Students bring instruments to make sound samples and use Excel to analyze samples.Part two: Students change one cell in Excel to sample and analyze an "unknown" source located at a remote site.

2) Site player (http://www.siteplayer.com/) is essentially a chip with a web server built in and connections to a serial port and TCP/IP. It does not use a full operation system. Because this device cannot be programed from the web server side it cannot be hacked. Such Internet appliances are inherently more secure than a full operating system. We are investigating this device as a simple TCP/IP to serial pass through device which would eliminate the necessity for a computer at the data collection side entirely using our techniques.
3) It might be possible to do the same thing with a Jet Direct box currently used to put printers on line. We have not investigated this yet. Other 'Internet Appliances' might similarly be controlled using JAVA or a VB macro if the device interprets TCP/IP protocal.
