The InfoAge Board of Trustees recently added Daniel Marlow, K2QM to its ranks. Marlow, who teaches physics at Princeton University, wants to use InfoAge's large radio telescope to pursue radio astronomy for instructional purposes.
In particular, Marlow stated that "My primary goal is to restore the TLM-18 dish antenna to working order," [Using the TLM-18], "We should see the 21 cm radiation from the Milky Way very clearly, which will allow the students to map out the rotation curve of our galaxy. This provides indirect evidence for dark matter, which is one of the great puzzles in modern cosmology,"
Marlow also said that "A more ambitious undertaking will be the observation of radio pulsars." As pulsar observation can be performed at 70cm, the TLM-18 will be made available to the amateur radio community for EME at 432 MHz as a secondary user.
Located adjacent to the N2MO station at InfoAge, The TLM-18 antenna is 60 feet in diameter, with a stated gain of 35 dBi at 465 MHz.
