Sounds of Jupiter
Last updated: Oct 5, 2019
It is relatively easy to receive the natural radio emissions from planet Jupiter. Just a simple dipole, a radio with SSB reception tuned to 20.1 Mhz. It is important to do some planning to calculate Jupiter’s sky position regarding the observing station. RadioSky Publishing provides a program called Radio Jupiter Pro that calculates Jupiter’s position and elevation, among other features. You have a 30-days trial but the license is not very expensive.
For those who wish to study further in this field, NASA has an online project called Radio Jove, focused on the study of Jovian emissions. In addition to theoretical and practical examples, the agency sells, for a very modest amount, an easy-to-build radio telescope kit consisting of a 20.1 MHz tuned radio and a dipole antenna.
