About the Author

Laura A. Whitlock is Assistant Professor of Physics at Louisiana State University in Shreveport. After many years as a high-energy astrophysicist on various NASA projects, she turned her talents to education. She now teaches a variety of courses in physics and astronomy. After attending the NSF Chautauqua Course "Radio Astronomy in the Undergraduate Classroom" at MIT Haystack Observatory in 2004, she became inspired to learn more about the subject and develop a lecture-lab course in it for the students at LSUS. Kiley Pulliam is a first-year graduate student in Physics at Tulane University in New Orleans. She graduated with a BS in Physics and minors in Mathematics and Philosophy from Centenary College of Louisiana in Shreveport. She became involved in this project while taking a Radio Astronomy course taught by Dr. Whitlock.

Format: Paperback
The book should be called/imply Lab Exercises for Introductory Radio Astronomy at 1420 MHz with the MIT Haystack Small Radio Telescope. It assumes you own the latter instrument and the book has little potential if you don't. Pitched at UK post-16 study otherwise.

I bought this book together with Lashley's book. I will use this book when I build my telescope on my swecondary school.

Good starting point 13 Nov. 2013
By Julian Grodzicky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If your interested in starting out in amateur radio astronomy, this book is a good first step into a very comprehensive field. Іt will give you some focus as you start out, as well as giving you some questions to think about. Some very basic knowledge and skills in electronics would be helpful but not essential.

Not really much there for Radio Astronomy as it could have been for exercises. Not recommended for the serious amateur radio astronomer.

Pretty elementary. Workbook style might make it useful for a class, not so good on your own.
