Ground penetrating radar (GPR) signal capture has been a challenge since the method first appeared. The capture of radio frequency signals has required some specialized receiver design and overall more complex system architecture than visible to the normal GPR user. As the field of GPR is evolving and moves towards more quantitative data analysis, there is a need for users to better understand the signal capture process. We provide a summary of the underpinning aspects of GPR signals and an overview of the principles that have been involved in time-domain signal capture. The capture of wideband transient signals requires considerable hardware ingenuity and the concepts are illustrated with presenting data acquired by an older and new receiver from the same location.
