Title: Project CLEA: Radio Astronomy of Pulsars
Url: http://public.gettysburg.edu/~marschal/clea/plsrlab.html
Publisher: Gettysburg College
Description: This software for Windows, from Project CLEA -- Contemporary Laboratory Experiences In Astronomy, presents students with a radio telescope. The default operating characteristics (beam width, receiver noise, steerability) can be set by the instructor. Students can point the telescope at a source in the sky, viewing the output of the radio receiver on a graphic display that resembles a digital oscilloscope. The student manual describes exercises in which students acquaint themselves with the operation of the radio telescope, measure the signals from several pulsars at various frequencies, learn about pulsar signals, and then estimate the distance to the pulsar. The site includes student and instructor manuals as well as a pre- and posttest. The software is available for Windows only.
