Sunday 19th March 2017 - Radio Astronomy Group Working Bee

The next Radio Astronomy Group (RAG) meeting will be on Sunday 19th March at 11AM.

This working bee we will be installing and testing the Hydrogen Line Receiver (connected to the two dishes).  If you are interested in learning a bit about Hydrogen Line radio astronomy there is a useful explainer here: http://www.spaceacademy.net.au/spacelab/projects/hlineobs/hlineobs.htm

Our current status with Radio Jove is that we have now finished building the two Radio Jove receivers http://radiojove.gsfc.nasa.gov/ and they have been tested and aligned (with a signal generator).  The next step is to build two antennae, install analysis software and start using the receivers.  Should happen soon!
