Solar Radio Emission Receiver, 5 + 8 MHz

NSSDCA ID: 1971-080A-01

Mission Name: Shinsei
Principal Investigator:Prof. Tatsuo Takakura


This experiment consisted of two, continuously operating radio receivers designed to monitor radio emissions at 5 and 8 MHz associated with solar flares. Radio signal intensity, signal delay between bursts, and other characteristics of radio burst occurrence were observed. These receivers operated nominally until tape recorder failure in February 1972. No data were subsequently observed because flare monitoring was not practical without a tape recorder.

Alternate Names
