Radio Telescope – Introduction

Radio JOVE focuses on observations of natural radio emissions from Jupiter, the Sun, the Earth, and the radio background noise from our Milky Way galaxy at "decametric" wavelengths. The original JOVE radio telescope, comprising an antenna, receiver, software, optional calibrator, and extensive documentation was introduced as a kit in 1999. Over 2500 original Radio JOVE radio telescopes have been sold worldwide, and we continue to work with and support these observers and the original hardware and software.

In 2022, we introduced a new radio telescope kit using a multifrequency Software Defined Radio (SDR) receiver, because it became increasingly difficult to obtain parts for the original RJ1.1 kits. Radio JOVE now offers a radio telescope package including a commercially-built multifrequency SDR receiver (a spectrograph), an antenna, and spectrograph software.
