Has anyone hear listened to Jupiter? I've heard that its easy to do but never tried, and not sure how its done with basic ham equipment? I'd be grateful to hear if you have any experiences or web links! I have HAM radios and have built an optical telescope, but never a radio telescope, so I should be able to rig up something...just dont know what sort of antenna or what frequency to tune in to..... Thanks! Chris AE6TI

This should get you started. I have been thinking about it.

There is also a yahoo group.
