gives brief usage details


sigmon is a command line tool for monitoring the signal strength seen by a Vodafone 3G/GPRS datacard. Once started, it queries the datacard for the signal strength and displays it every 5 seconds. Use Ctrl/C to stop the signal strength display and exit from sigmon


sigmon is a simple script that assumes that the third port of the datacard is /dev/ttyUSB2. If the datacard is not the first USB device registered the script must be modified to correct the port name. Read /var/log/messages to find the correct port name.
