RASC Vancouver has started a project to setup a radio telescope and we are asking for donations of surplus equipment such as the following:
- Laptops (maybe you have one from your latest upgrade, want a new one and need an excuse 😀). The laptops will be used, with radio astronomy software, for a portable setup at RASC Vancouver events,
- Antennae and large dish antennae,
- Radio receivers,
- Ham radio equipment.
You never know what will be useful since we are just starting out. If you have equipment to donate then email Ken Arthurs, our Director of Telescopes at [email protected].
The Sept/Oct edition of our NOVA newsletter has an article that describes our initial forays into radio astronomy.
