The "standard" receiver for the Radio JOVE project is the RJ 1.1, described below. Some of the other receiver options are also listed here for your consideration.
The RF-2001 is similar to the basic RJ 1.1 Jove receiver except that it includes a front panel signal strength indicator and a DC signal strength voltage suitable for use with an analog to digital converter. The RF-2001 is available built and tested from RF Associates, email@example.com
The Icom R-75 is an excellent commercial receiver that has been used by many Jove observers. The AGC can be turned off with a front panel switch on the R-75. This is not true for other modern Icom receivers such as the PCR1000. The dynamic range of the R-75 is best when the receiver is used in SSB mode.
Yogesh Karandikar has designed and built a 20 MHz receiver using components available in India. Details of his receiver design are available at http://receiverforjupiter.tripod.com/
