We've recently been testing methods to help budding amateur radio astronomers get into the hobby cheaply and easily. We have found that a low cost GHz cm x 60 cm parabolic WiFi grid antenna, combined with an RTL-SDR and LNA is sufficient to detect the hydrogen line peak and doppler shifts of the galactic plane. Amateur Radio Astronomy: MHz Interferometer. by Jim Abshier Printed in Reflections: March, After posting an example plot of my radio telescope output on the Lowbrows list, I received a couple of requests for more information. One request was for an explanation of the plot, and another was for pictures of my equipment.

  Frequency is the name of the game in amateur radio astronomy, and most scopes are geared towards the 18 megahertz to 10, megahertz range. A program known as Radio-SkyPipe makes a good graphic.

Essential Radio Astronomy (ERA) grew from lecture notes for the one-semester radio astronomy course taken by all astronomy graduate students at the University of Virginia. To attract advanced undergraduates with backgrounds in astronomy, physics, engineering, or astrochemistry to radio astronomy, we limited the prerequisites to basic physics courses covering classical mechanics.

Try a local ham radio club or ask at your astronomy club meeting if anyone knows electronics. About 40% of people doing amateur radio astronomy are ham radio operators also.

You can also take a course in electronics at a local adult night school, or even get one of those in 1 kits and a book on theory to work through. Click here for ideas.
