There was a Gamma Ray Burst (GRB) reported at 0612:49 UT on March 19, 2008
that was visible at +5 magnitude.
My Sandia National Laboratories Sentinel all-sky camera system is not sensitive
to that magnitude so although the night
was clear and the position of the GRB in the constellation Bootes was in
view the GRB was too faint to be observed here.
Also, below is my radiospectrograph for two ICOM PCR1000 radios for the frequencies
of 61.250 MHz and 83.250 MHz in CW mode.
61.250 MHz reception is above the white line, 83.250 MHz reception is below
the white line. Nothing extraordinary observed during the
0612 UT minute, just normal background space
dust. - Thomas Ashcraft
