CCERA nears completion of first “school” radio telescope

We have been busy the last few weeks building-up a mobile radio telescope in support of high-school physics programs.

CCERA secured access to a number of small, very-high-quality microwave dishes, and we’re turning two of those into a mobile radio telescope that can be loaned to local high-schools for radio astronomy demonstrations and short-term observing programs.

Based on an Andrew 0.8M reflector, these telescopes are designed to receive signals at 12GHz or 2.8GHz, depending on the observing program.
