It is the responsibility of SRMC to undertake HF monitoring and space monitoring at the state level, as well as the VHF/UHF monitoring in some special cases. SRMC formulates standards and guidelines for spectrum monitoring and provides other spectrum monitoring organizations of lower levels with technical guidance. To have a full understanding of the use of radio spectrum, and to eliminate harmful interference quickly and effectively, SRMC established its national HF monitoring network, national space monitoring network and national VHF/UHF monitoring demonstration network.

The national HF monitoring network consists of nine state monitoring stations located in Beijing, Harbin, Shanghai, Fujian, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Yunnan, Shaanxi and Urumchi. In the HF band, the network is capable of monitoring emissions originated from China and neighboring countries. Among these stations, Beijing Monitoring Station is registered by ITU as an international monitoring station.The national space monitoring network consists of two state monitoring stations—Beijing Monitoring Station and Shenzhen Monitoring Station. It is capable of monitoring emissions from GSO satellites in the L, S, C, X, Ku and Ka bands. In addition, it is also capable of monitoring emissions from non-GSO satellites in the L, S and X bands.In the VHF/UHF band, SRMC’s monitoring network is composed of a central station and 8 remotelycontrolled stations. This monitoring network fully covers Beijing and its nearby areas. National VHF/UHF monitoring demonstration network is an adaptable multi-mode VHF/UHF monitoring network with highly automatic and intelligent ability, which can embody core idea and key technology of VHF/UHF monitoring network, solve general issues and difficult problems in VHF/UHF monitoring task, study upcoming evolution and future tendency, demonstrate and guide construction and usage of VHF/UHF monitoring network at provincial level.

These technical facilities played a critical role in undertaking all the routine or special monitoring tasks and they help ensure an orderly radio spectrum.
