7-m Radio Telescope Available for School Projects

Jodrell Bank Observatory 7-m Radio Telescope

The EC-funded project RadioNet is now providing EU-HOU, through the University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank Observatory (UK), a 7-m radio telescope for use by schools throughout Europe for simple real-time observing projects.

To use this telescope you will need to be registered for internet observing under the RadioNet project. To register, send an email to radionet@jb.man.ac.uk giving your contact name, address and email address. You will then be sent a registration pack which includes a username and password, a brief manual for the use of the telescope and several simple radio astronomy exercises to perform with the 7-m telescope.
