The purpose of this program is to help you observe the decametric radio noise storms of the planet Jupiter. The program facilitates your observations by:
Jupiter emits strong bursts of radio frequency energy which can be heard with relatively simple receiving equipment and antennas. These bursts usually are received when Jupiter is at certain points in its rotation and when the innermost moon, Io (pronounced eye-oh), is at certain positions in its orbit. The study of these signals makes for an exciting introduction to the science of radio astronomy.
In addition to information on how to run this program there are many pages of help regarding the theory and practical aspects of listening to Jupiter. For an even more thorough discussion of these topics, it is suggested that you purchase a copy of "Listening to Jupiter" by Richard Flagg, available from Radio-Sky Publishing.
