Radio astronomy is far from being beyond the scope of amateurs astronomers, and this practical, self-contained guide for the newcomer to practical radio astronomey is an ideal introduction. This guide is a must for anyone who wants to join the growing ranks of 21st Century backyard radio astronomers.The first part of the book provides background material and explains (in a non-mathematical way) our present knowledge of the stronger radio sources those observable by amateurs including the Sun, Jupiter, Meteors, Galactic and extra-galactic sources.The second part of the book deals not only with observing, but assuming no prior technical knowledge of electronics or radio theory takes the reader step-by-step through the process of building and using a backyard radio telescope.There are complete, detailed plans and construction information for a number of amateur radio telescopes, the simplest of which can be put together and working using only simple tools in a weekend. For other instruments, there are full details of circuit-board layouts, components to use and (vitally important in radio astronomy) how to construct antennae for radio astronomy.
