Radio JOVE Kits

The Radio JOVE project has designed a simple decametric radio telescope receiver and antenna kit. When completed, this system is capable of receiving Jupiter's natural radio emissions, radio emissions from solar storms, and the natural radio background of the Milky Way galaxy. Over 2400 of these kits have been purchased. Schools and amateur scientists world-wide have assembled and used the RJ 1.1 radio telescope kit.

Several other items are also availble for purchase from the Radio JOVE project, including a calibrator/filter. For your convenience we also offer the receiver and antenna as separate kits, should you not need both. In addition, the receiver can also be purchased fully assembled and tested.

[ Note: We are often asked if it is possible to use one's own commercially-made shortwave receiver for Radio JOVE. It is possible to use such receivers ONLY IF the receiver allows the user to disable the AGC circuit. AGC alters the background noise levels, which distorts the very thing you are trying to observe for Radio JOVE. ]
