Amateur Radio Astronomy Webring: Contains a list of amateur radio astronomy sites.
Projects and Observatories
Fred P. Lossing Observatory: A website about amateur radio astronomy. The site is run by Chip, one of our members who does a lot of our data analysis. He produces the nice charts that you see in the results section of the 408MHz Survey website. This observatory was formally known as the Indian River Observatory.
RADIO ASTRONOMY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF INDIANAPOLIS: While this site is based at a university, it appears to be an 'amateur' effort. They do observations at the hydrogen line, C-band and Ku-band.
5.2 Meter Radio Astronomy Project for 1420 MHz: An amateur radio astronomy project dedicated to observing at the hydrogen line.
EME, SETI, Radio Astronomy, DSP and Radio Amateurs: A site that covers a wide range of related activities. This site is definitely worth a visit.
Radio Astronomy Supplies: There seems to be a market for this!
FM Radio Detection of Meteors: A project for detecting meteors. In this case it is done passively by monitoring signals from FM broadcast stations reflected of the ionization trail left by meteors.
Radio detection of Solar Flares: A shortwave radio is used to monitor known stations. The data shows a lot of variations due to daily and seasonal variations in the ionosphere. This data can be used to study propagation. More relevant to radio astronomy, solar flares leave a very distinct signature in the data - an indirect and easy way of detecting flares.
Ned's Amateur Radio Astronomy Page: An observer that is active on a wide range of frequencies from VLF up to Ku-band. See the HEPS project page on this site.
Moonbounce and Meteorscatter
High Speed CW Meteor Scatter: An Amateur Radio website about meteorscatter communications. This can form the basis of an interesting amateur radio astronomy project.
OE5JFL - large moonbounce station: This radio amateur has several interesting moonbounce projects. Plots of his signals reflected off the moon, plots of sun noise during a solar eclipse and plots showing the distance to the moon are just some of the interesting results that is available on this site. He also has audio files of recordings he made of his own signals reflected off the moon. The time it takes the signal to return, allows you to listen to your own voice coming back from the moon!
EME Information: This site contains EME scheduling information, operating procedures and some links.
EME(Moonbounce): A site containing a useful introduction to EME. There are also several audio files of recorded EME contacts. To listen to these, you will have to install the free Realplayer Basic from Real.
Ham Radio Station W5UN, op Dave Blaschke: This is the website of the largest 2m EME station in the world. A station like this will make a very good VHF amateur radio astronomy observatory.
W7GJ's EME website: Contains a description of his station, links and some moon tracking software for download.
The Amateur SETI Hompage: This is a site with lots of information. The observatory and its supporting equipment and software is quite impressive. Software is available for download and there is a long page containing useful radio astronomy formulas.
Amateur SETI: Project BAMBI: A very impressive program at 4GHz. This project makes its software, schematics and printed circuit board layouts available for download.
