You have landed on the BAA RAG Web pages. The site content has been totally rewritten with additional new content added on a regular basis.We would welcome details of projects that you are working on or any observations that you have made. Please contact the webmaster for further information.
We also run a discussion group hosted by Yahoo. We will also be developing this over the next few months - you can subscribe to the group to receive e-mails by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, you do not need to be a Yahoo group member. If you are already a Yahoo group member the group link is http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/baa-rag/
Many amateur astronomers who are interested in what
happens outside of the optical spectrum are put off making radio observations
because they believe that large parabolic aerials and complicated electronic
circuits are required to receive the very faint signals arriving from
space. They are put off, too, in thinking that the radio astronomer’s
output comprises nothing more than reams of paper on which traces akin
to squiggly lines are recorded. It is true that there are aspects of radio
astronomy that need big dishes and sophisticated electronics, but there
are others that can be observed with relatively simple equipment.
We always appreciate feedback on the work of the Group and suggestions as to what should be included on this site. If you would like to help in any way please drop a mail to the RAG Coordinator. RAG is not a collection of experts in radio astronomy but of people who are simply interested in the subject and would like to learn more, perhaps build equipment or just make observations. Your contributions will help others.
The UK Radio Astronomy Association (UKRAA) was set up
in 2008 with the support of the Radio Astronomy Group of the British Astronomical
Association to handle the development and sale of radio astronomy equipment
developed by the BAA RAG.
