Short summary
This paper summarises the results obtained by analysing the solar radio bursts detected by a single spectrogram installed at the University of Rwanda through the collaboration and the initiation of the space weather initiative. We aimed to show that data gaps in the African continent can be tracked by the deployment of cheap spectrograms, but their regular maintenance matters. In addition, the results show that the observation at a single station is a clue to studying space weather hazards.
