When we think astronomy we generally think of optical astronomy, but the electromagnetic spectrum covers a much larger set of frequencies than just optical, at longer wavelengths, past infrared, electromagnetic waves are referred to as 'radio' and these pages are dedicated to the study of the universe at these wavelengths.
Radio astronomy is new (March 2011) to CMHAS, so our experience is also limited, these pages will try to explain how to observe at radio wavelengths, the approach is to start with easy low cost projects and working our way up to more advanced studies
