New Website under development, coming soon
A new updated website is in development now (April 2018) and will be available to all soon. Meanwhile the oldsite remains accessible here.
Radio Astronomy Group
You will see that we also have a Twitter account. We will use this technology to notify group members of events, updates and observations.
We also run a discussion group hosted by Yahoo. We will also be developing this over the next few months - you can subscribe to the group to receive e-mails by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, you do not need to be a Yahoo group member. If you are already a Yahoo group member the group link is http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/baa-rag/
Many amateur astronomers who are interested in what
happens outside of the optical spectrum are put off making radio observations
because they believe that large parabolic aerials and complicated electronic
circuits are required to receive the very faint signals arriving from
space. They are put off, too, in thinking that the radio astronomer’s
output comprises nothing more than reams of paper on which traces akin
to squiggly lines are recorded. It is true that there are aspects of radio
astronomy that need big dishes and sophisticated electronics, but there
are others that can be observed with relatively simple equipment.
We always appreciate feedback on the work of the Group and suggestions as to what should be included on this site. If you would like to help in any way please drop a mail to the RAG Coordinator. RAG is not a collection of experts in radio astronomy but of people who are simply interested in the subject and would like to learn more, perhaps build equipment or just make observations. Your contributions will help others.
The UK Radio Astronomy Association (UKRAA) was set up
in 2008 with the support of the Radio Astronomy Group of the British Astronomical
Association to handle the development and sale of radio astronomy equipment
developed by the BAA RAG.
Radio Astronomy Talks
Please notify Jeff Lashley of any Radio Astronomy events that you would like to see publicised
