Video: Historic Maryland — Jupiter Radio Emissions

marker thumbnail A film crew has created a short video on the story behind the Maryland Historic Marker which recognizes the location where the discovery of Jupiter's Radio Emissions took place in 1955.

Historical Note

20+ Years of Radio JOVE:

The Radio JOVE Project turned 20 years-old in 2019! Here's remembering all those who have made the project go over the years, some who are, sadly, no longer with us. Thank you to all those who support and participate in Radio JOVE.

Watch live-streamed Radio JOVE data on YouTube!

Radio JOVE team member Larry Dodd live-streams his radio spectrograph data and audio on YouTube. The spectrograph data come from an SDRplay receiver operating over the 16–24 MHz frequency range. The audio is streamed from an original Radio JOVE receiver tuned to 20.1 MHz. See and hear his live data here:

Welcome to Radio JOVE!

team constructing RJ 1.1 kit Radio JOVE students and amateur scientists from around the world observe and analyze natural radio emissions of Jupiter, the Sun, and our galaxy using their own easy to construct radio telescopes.

What's New: Radio JOVE announces a 2023 and 2024 solar eclipse observing campaign. In support of NASA Citizen Science and in partnership with the Heliophysics Big Year, Radio JOVE wants your help to study the Sun. Full details can be found here.

23 June 2023 - Larry Dodd, K4LED, provides a very valuable service to the Radio JOVE community: a 24/7 livestream view of the output from his radio observatory in Georgia, USA.

Recently, Larry created short video segments that highlight solar radio storms he observed on June 20th and 21st 2023, associated with powerful X-class and M-class X-ray flares.

As a further aid to the Radio JOVE community Larry also created a video explaining some of the features of his livestream as well as describing the Radio-Jupiter Pro software and the Radio JOVE project in more detail.

Check out Larry's livestream if you detect something on your equipment and want a quick confirmation or if you don't have radio equipment and you're just curious to know what's up right now. You might catch a solar burst in the act or the more elusive Jupiter radio bursts. Don't forget to 'like' his livestream and subscribe to the K4LED YouTube channel to help keep him 'on the air.'
