Hands-on Radio Astronomy Training for University Lecturers

The workshop will conduct hands-on training sessions on the assembly of a 21-cm pyramidal horn antenna radio telescope, observation planning and execution, and the use of python-based software for the acquisition, reduction, analysis of data from the telescope. Organised by NASRDA- Centre for Basic Space Sciences, Nigeria. It will introduce participants to python programming and radio astronomy instrumentation, and digital signal processing. Participants will then be supported to assemble a 21-cm horn antenna radio telescope and make observations.
