SuperSID receiver

SuperSID receiver

Kim picked up the Supersid receiver last month and over the holiday break we built the loop antenna and connected it to this radio receiver.
After disabling windows 7 auto updates (with required reboot), we have started gathering data to commission this new radio telescope.

It utilizes a loop antenna we built out of 24 gauge wire, on a 2m x 2m loop built with 1″ PVC arms.
This antenna should be much more efficient than the existing one on SID2, which is much smaller but with more loops.
