 Electronic Dice by Nina Gajjar

 

 

 

A Simple Direct Conversion 20.1MHZ Radio Astronomy Receiver

FD-Galileo2 is designed for NASA’s Radio Jove project. Here is some basic information for your quick review.

NASA's Radio JOVE project is centered on the low cost radio telescope receiver, which can be used by science classes to collect planetary or solar radio astronomy data. Schools may opt to use other equipment to collect this data, but use of the Radio Jove receiver is highly recommended and provides good educational value to the students.

The radio telescope is intended for high school level classes, but may be appropriate for introductory college courses or advanced middle school students.

Galileo2 is a direct conversion 20.1MHZ receiver suitable for Jupiter noise measurement. Radio amateurs may use this tiny receiver on any of the amateur radio bands with little change in coil design.
