This paper describes an automatic lineshape recording device applied to the study of the rotational molecular transition J: 2 → 3 of OCS gas at 36.489 GHz. The device includes a microwave oversized cell associated with a DC voltage amplifier and a microcontroller stabilizer. It particularly permits the automatic recording of the lineshape with an accuracy better than 1 kHz for the frequency and 1 mV for the voltage. By fitting with a Lorentz or Voigt profile, we directly determine the evolution of the shape, the center frequency, the broadening parameter and the intensity of the line versus the pressure. At low pressure, the Doppler broadening effect has been measured.
