This observatory has been developed by David Morgan.
My efforts and the time spent on the 15 foot antenna at school were detrimental to my A Level studies , however the experience was useful in the formal interview for a place to study at the UK Radio Astronomy site of Manchester University at Jodrell Bank.
On taking up the subject again in 2005 it was fascinating to see how far electronic devices have improved since those days at Jodrell. Sensitive preamplifiers (PHEMT) costing a few tens of UK£s were now able to achieve levels of performance that only research groups using cryogenically cooled devices were able to do in the 70’s.
