Sunday 10th September 2017 - Radio Astronomy Group Working Bee

The next Radio Astronomy Group working bee will be 10am Sunday 10th September where we will be working on both Radio Jove and the 21cm hydrogen line gear.  I have also procured a Raspberry Pi 3 (model B) with some extras to experiment with and will bring this along on Sunday.

A rough agenda so far is:

  • Test the Radio Jove masts at full height (weather permitting)
  • Install cable guides to tidy up cabling under eaves
  • See if we can try my Raspberry Pi 3 with Radio Jove
  • See if we can address the noisy channel on the 21cm hydrogen line receiver

Ray has taken the 21cm receiver to see if he can trace out the circuitry to compare to the supplied diagrams.
