             abstract = "The use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs) is nowadays 
                         very popular, and the positioning service that they provide is 
                         becoming the basis of several applications. Due to their wide 
                         coverage, GNSS signals can be used at no cost as probing signals 
                         to retrieve parameters to characterize the atmosphere, such as 
                         ionospheric scintillation indexes. GNSS receivers coupled to the 
                         specific algorithm are indeed a valid alternative to large and 
                         expensive ad hoc equipment such as ionosondes. In particular, 
                         Software Defined Radio (SDR) receivers are characterized by a 
                         higher level of flexibility and configurability when compared to 
                         commercial receivers, which fits for the purposes of ionospheric 
                         monitoring and enable the study of advanced and innovative 
                         algorithms, both for scientific purposes (ionospheric monitoring, 
                         space weather), and for technological development (robust GNSS 
                         receivers design). A GNSS-based ionosphere monitoring station, 
                         including an SDR-based receiver and a professional receiver, was 
                         installed in the CRAAM laboratory at Mackenzie Presbyterian 
                         University (S{\~a}o Paulo, Brazil) on May 2017. Details of the 
                         installation and the new approaches for the storage, processing, 
                         and transfer of GNSS data, including raw Intermediate Frequency 
                         (IF) samples, are described, along with preliminary results 
                         related to ionospheric events captured during the first months of 
                         its operation.",
