The Jove meeting begins on Wednesday morning with a discussion of the Jove radio telescope. Throughout the day we will progress from the basics of radio Jove to more advanced systems. Along with discussions of receiver hardware and analysis software, you will hear about Jovian emissions, the source of these signals, and remaining mysteries as to how these signals are generated. Beginning at an introductory level suitable for the new Jove observer, we will progress to advanced receiving systems and analysis being performed by amateur and professional Jupiter radio astronomers.

The 2014 SARA Western Conference was held in Bishop, California USA over the weekend of 22~23 March at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory (OVRO) and Holiday Inn Express. Bill and Melinda Lord again worked hard to get everything setup, and David Westman helped arrange our visit to the OVRO, which is about 27 road miles south of Bishop . Whitham Reeve, conference coordinator, did very little but, of course, took all the credit as we have come to expect. We had 30± attendees at this year’s conference, and to my knowledge there were no trouble-makers in the group except, as usual, SARA president Bill Lord.

An Overview of the Radio JOVE Project
The Radio Jove Project Team
By: Dr. Chuck Higgins
Abstract: Radio JOVE is an education and outreach project intended to give students and other interested individuals a hands-on experience in learning radio astronomy. After selling our first kit in 1999, Radio Jove has sold about 1900 radio telescopes in more than 70 countries around the world. Hardware and software has evolved in this time, and the Radio Jove Team will give a complete update and overview of the status of the program as of 2014.
