Hello,

I have the reprint 2008 of the edition from 2006 with corrections from the page http://www.rsgb.org/books/extra/arastronomy.htm.

Now I read that there has been a new edition with 80 pages +. Did someone compare the editions? Or is it worth to buy this 2nd edition?

Really strange. "Radio Astronomy" does not seem to be a hit. So I wrote in my blog some remarks about what we possibly can achieve in "Amateuer Radio Astronomy". In fact we do it already, but we call it otherwise.


Have a look Q:Can you hear the sky on earth?

PS: If someone knows the difference between the editions - I am still interested.

I'm casually interested. I'd like to try and receive Jupiter someday.

This is a fun read: http://blog.modernmechanix.com/2011/01/12/static-from-the-stars/

I am not sure I understand what you are saying - there seem to be a lot of folks doing "amateur radio astronomy".  A quick google search on that term will net you many many hits and even links to several societies and groups that promote and do amateur radio astronomy.  In fact there are some folks doing some pretty cool things in radio astronomy in their backyards all over the world.

@K5TR

You are right. This was some kind of ambiguous. Grin Of course I googled and found these pages. But I had the feeling, that these people belong to the "ingroup" and I am an amateur. I wanted to have an opinion of "normal" amateurs to understand what it is really possible or not.

And the reaction in a German and this forum was null. So I thought: If the book of ZS5JF is sold so often where are those readers?
But as you have noticed I read the book a second time and found it inspiring.
