Nottingham Astronomical Society has several individuals with a keen interest in radio astronomy, the technical challenges of performing it and the interesting learning that can be gained from it. We are also developing good links with the Radio Astronomy Group of the British Astromonical Association (BAA RAG), local Societies and Universities, who all practice radio observation of the sky.
If you have an interest or experience in Radio Astronomy we would be very happy to talk to you, please contact our Secretary.
Current NAS Projects
