step by step guide for absolute beginners

Recommended Posts

hey people, just a bit intrigued about radio astronomy. With the weather being so rubbish lately and me getting frustrated that i cant use any of my scopes i think this might be a subject that could keep me occupied. so im a absolute beginner ( i know a little bit about the electromagnetic spectrum to get me by).

How do i go about this? remember im a beginner so everything in simple terms! haha

would be cool maybe if someone could post a full beginners guide with pics.

cheers

Dan

i think the problem is, most of us are :-(

Even the BAA has only just formed a Radio Astronomy Group

An interesting branch of the science though, no doubt

Hey all,

This is quite an old thread, so I thought i'd revive it as feel the same as the the original author.

Any thoughts about how to start this? Even just a good book recommendation.

Cheers,

David

I'd be interested in learning about "earwigging" on the cosmos, it must work, otherwise they wouldn't build them HUGE dishes all over the place.

I think the best place to look would be an amateur radio forum. I think they often bounce radio off meteors and the moon.
