Sunday 1st April 2018 - Radio Astronomy Group "Extra" Meeting

Hi Radio Astro folks,

The next RAG meeting will be the "extra" monthly meeting at 10am on Sunday 1st April (yes really) so let me know if you are interested in coming along!

IMPORTANT: Daylight savings finishes April 1st - if you forget (or think this is an April Fool) then you'll turn up an hour early! :-)

Plans are:

  1. See if Adrians work on the hydrogen line receiver has helped with our intermittent fault.
  2. Capture some sample data from the receiver with the SDR equipment I've got and see what the output looks like.
  3. Re-cable the Radio Jove gear in a better way, I tried to fire up the one Lindsay returned but heard no audio through the speakers.  I suspect it's trivial to fix but the cables are so short it's hard to trace.
  4. Try and tune the second Radio Jove using Ray's signal generator, Lindsay did the other one for the BBC filming session.

People are also welcome to investigate the other projects we've got ideas for, perhaps to make a start on Ray's magnetometers, researching what we need to do regarding burying & cabling them.

For more info or to ask questions please contact me at:
