Newbie here. I'm very interested in how to interpret results. I read the intro in "about" but I was looking at my results for an astropulse and I noticed it said "percent blanket" at the end. Is this persistence of said pulses throughout the entirety of the sample? Any other information anyone has, or links, as to how to interpret results would be appreciated. I would also like to know about the significance of certain trends or particular signals, whether they are an astropulse or otherwise. Sorry in advance if this has been covered, but i couldn't find anything on percent blankets.

The " percent blanked:" line indicates how much of the data was thrown away because the Astropulse application judged it was affected by Radio Frequency Interference.

Ah. I see I read it wrong the first time and continued to do so. Thank you, I like knowing what the program is actually doing while it runs.
