    Default Just discovered the sounds of Jupiter



    I hope this is the correct Place to put this.
    Recently I began reading a book called Skywave, by K. Patrick Donahue and in it one of the main protagonists routinely listens to radio waves emanating from Jupiter via a NASA run website called Radio Jove.
    Well this really is a thing and you can find it here https://radiojove.gsfc.nasa.gov/
    This is so cool how did I not know about this?
    Scope = Celestron CPC800 8"sct. Sky-watcher Heritage 130p flex tube Dobsonian Binoculars = Helios Ultima 10x50 porro prism.
    Eyepieces = Baader Hyperion Aspheric 31mm and 36mm. Baader Hyperion 8mm, 13mm, 17mm, 21mm and 24mm.
    Diagonal = 2" Altair dielectric diagonal.

    HI CB. A great link from you. You reminded me of a thread that I was on 5 years ago. So, for those of you that want try and hear Jupiter with your own general coverage shortwave receiver or ham radio transceiver with general coverage shortwave, here is a great link on how to do this too, at:
    Detecting Jupiter's Radio Emissions
    For those of you who feel reluctant to hand make a bifilar wound toroidal transformer for the folded dipole antenna for receiving Jupiter's noise signals, here is an alternative, at:
    https://www.amazon.com/RCA-VH54R-Mat.../dp/B00005T3EY
    You can remove the flat line connectors and just solder the transformer leads to each side of the center spacer/insulator. Then, use some GE Sealastic over the connections, and around the plastic seams of the transformer. The transformer comes with a coax "F" connector, so you can use a "weather boot" over the coax connection, and then install the correct connector on the other end of the coax at the receiver end of your equipment. This should make things a little easier. Thanks CB for this interesting thread, and best of regards.
