Radio ice detectors for Ultra High Energy neutrinos take advantage of large natural ice sheets
to detect the impulsive emission of radio signals from Askaryan emission. The Askaryan Radio
Array (ARA) has deployed several prototype detectors at the South Pole. Using Monte Carlo
simulations, we re-examine various design parameters of a neutrino detector at the South Pole.
Along with the frequency acceptance of the detector, the sensitivity of an ARA-like detector
depends on several parameters such as station depth, station horizontal baseline and geometry
of the station. The effect of some of these parameters on sensitivity exhibit significant energy
dependence. We also analyze the change in signal response of the station with different
frequency acceptance bands which could help reduce the cost of the new upcoming stations.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
