The next meeting of the Radio Astronomy Group will be 10am Sunday, 21st May.  It was to have been last Sunday, but it was decided to postpone it due to that day being Mothers Day. :-)

This Sunday we will be looking at some test equipment which should help us to set up/align the 20.1MHz Radio Jove receivers, and the 1420MHz Hydrogen Line receiver and antennae, as well as designing the two Radio Jove antennae.

Current projects are:

  1. Radio Jove – 2 receivers so we can do interferometry
  2. Hydrogen Line (1420MHz) interferometry

Future (probable) projects include:

  1. Magnetometer, for studying the effect of solar wind on Earths’ magnetic field
  2. There are many more possible Radio Astronomy projects, all within our means.
