Building a Jupiter Radio Telescope
Here is one example of a radio telescope where you can buy a complete kit of parts to build yourself an instrument that will not only receive radio Jupiter but will also detect solar flares. It comes under the title of Radio Jove (more on this later). Referring to the Chapter 2on the astrophysics of Jupiter it is clear the receiver needs to operate in the high HF radio spectrum. This means a conventional short wave receiver could be used as an alternative, but don’t forget it’s best to disable the automatic gain control (AGC).
