VLF receiver populated board only. The VLF Receiver output is a voltage varying with time, which may be fed to any data logger or digital multimeter. Alternatively, it may be connected to a UKRAA Controller which is managed with the Starbase software (provided free of licensing charge by UKRAA), allowing observations to be stored centrally and shared with other observers. The VLF Receiver is also compatible with the popular Radio Sky-Pipe data logging software, but extra components will be required.
The VLF Receiver has a tuning range of about 12 kHz to 35 kHz, requires a supply of 15 Volts DC at 35mA, and provides output signals at 0 – 2.5 Volts and 0 – 5 Volts. It is designed to work with the UKRAA VLF loop Aerial and the UKRAA VLF Aerial Tuning Unit. You may also find the UKRAA VLF Signal Generator useful during tuning of the system.
The receiver comes pre-aligned and tested to 23.4kHz DHO38 Ramsloh Germany.
