The Light Airborne Reflectometer for GNSS-R Observations (LARGO) is an airborne instrument designed for measuring the coherent reflectivity from different soils. In this work, an improved version of LARGO has been used in a field campaign together with other conventional remote sensing instruments. All the corrections made to the raw coherent reflectivity including the antenna pattern compensation, and a topographic correction are presented. The correlation between corrected coherent reflectivity and in situ soil moisture was not high enough due to the dry conditions of the field campaign.
