Radio astronomy isn't limited to large organizations with huge budgets. You can monitor effects of constantly changing space weather and you can receive fascinating radio signals directly from space with surprisingly simple and inexpensive equipment.

Someone with a strong background in electronics can design and build their own equipment to get started in radio astronomy, but the two projects below make it easy to participate without having to design your own equipment.

Participate in the Stanford Space Weather Monitor Program and observe constantly changing space weather effects in real-time.
