The Radio Sky CDROM I
Reduced to Just $15 !!!
Note that some of the software in
this collection has been superceded by newer versions, notably the most recent
data collection program is Radio-SkyPipe and
the most recent and advanced Jupiter prediction program is Radio-Jupiter
Pro 3. Still, the software presented here is functional and may even
be more suitable for older PCs running DOS and Win 3.1.
All of these programs are on the The Radio Sky CDROM I!
Over the years most of these software products sold separately for up to
$30 each, but now you can get them all on one convenient CDROM for only $15 plus postage. In addition you will get hundreds of megabytes
of other radio astronomy related resources saving hundreds of hours of download
time. For a peek at what else you get click
Radio-Sky Planetarium is a DOS based sky viewer program designed with the
amateur radio astronomer in mind. RSP will display cosmic radio sources
in equatorial and galactic formats. You can display your telescope beam
pattern on the screen, schedule observations, and much more. Additional
source databases are also provided below. These are specially formatted to be read by the Radio-Sky Planetarium program. Click here for more

Multiple Survey Catalog
A source catalog based on the catalog by Robert Dixon which combines source
listings from several other major surveys.
GB 1.4 Ghz Survey
The Green Bank (NRAO) 1.4 Ghz survey of sources.
GB 5 Ghz Survey
The Green Bank (NRAO) 5 Ghz survey of sources.
Based upon the Parkes southern sky surveys.
Radio-Jupiter predicts the best times to listen for Jupiter's decametric
radio noise storms. DOS and Windows versions are provided.
Radio-Jupiter for DOS
This early DOS based version actually has a couple of features which
the later Windows version does not. You can graph De and Magnetic
Latitude of Jupiter, and there is a graphical simulation.
Radio-Jupiter for Windows
Predicts likely noise storm occurrences, produces an ephemeris, and shows
realtime parameters important in noise storm prediction.

Data Collect Lite
Every radiotelescope needs some way to record its observations. Data
Collect Lite allows provides an easy way to store your observations on
your computer using simple to build analog to digital converters. You can
also use the Radio Shack Computer Interfaced Digital Volt Meter, or use
provided utilities to develop a driver for most any other analog to digital
Data Collect Lite for DOS
Great for putting that old DOS based PC back to work as a data collector.
Data Collect Lite for Windows 1.5
This updated version of the 16 bit data collection program addresses many
of the problems with the previous version. New features include real-time
and logged data sidereal clocks, support for the RS DVM, and more.
(Note: Free update available.)

Design Chebyshev band pass filters with this simple to use program. Print
out component values, or output files compatible with the Ladders program
below. Windows based.
Examine and experiment with ladder networks with this Windows program.
Graphically change components, tweak values, and display pass-through
characteristics on a network analyzer screen.
Maxread and AtoD Max
This project started out at the request of the Amateur Scientist columnist
for Scientific American for a 3 channel data collection program which would
be suitable for use with a 3 axis seismograph. I developed a circuit
based on an 8 channel Maxim integrated circuit and produced some simple
PASCAL code to collect the data. The data is collected at 10 samples
per second in each channel and is triggered by a threshold being exceeded
in any one channel. I made the call for someone out there to jump
in and produce a piece of software to display the data, but no one ever
did, so I wrote Maxread, a windows based program to do the job in simple
fashion. This is a project waiting to be expanded upon. Everything
you need to get going is here. Even the VB source code to Maxread is presented.
This project with some modification would be great for radio meteor detection
or solar/ Jupiter noise storm monitoring schemes.
