On 10 November 2022, measurements were made of the Atlas V JPSS-2 rocket launch from SLC-3E at Vandenberg Space Force Base, California. Measurements were made at 11 stations from distances of 200 m to 7 km from the launch pad. Measurement locations were arranged at various azimuthal angles relative to the rocket to investigate possible noise asymmetry. This paper discusses preliminary results from this measurement including overall levels, temporal and spectral characteristics, evidence of nonlinear propagation, and potential azimuthal asymmetry effects.
