UHF Radio Telescope Array

UHF Radio Telescope at Fuji Station

The UHF radiotelescope array is a core facility in our reseach activities to explore various misteries in the solar wind physics using the interplanetary scintillation (IPS) method. This system consists of four large radiotelescope, which are located at Toyokawa, Fuji, Sugadaira, and Kiso. The observing frequency is 327 MHz. Multi-station IPS measurements have been carried out with this system on daily basis to determine the solar wind velocity and scintillation level. This system is also used for observations of radio waves from Jupiter and pulsars under the inter-university collaborative reseach program.
