Collect radio frequency signals in the HF (5-30 MHz) band to study the galactic background emissions.

Description

Collect radio frequency signals in the HF (5-30 MHz) band to study the galactic background emissions, the HF signals from Jupiter, and the signals from terrestrial transmitters after having passed through the earth’s ionosphere. The ionosphere changes its characteristics on a minute to minute basis, particularly changing between day and night, but also in response to geomagnetic phenomena and solar events.
