SETI Little Ear
Sat, 29 Aug 1998 19:22:35 EDT

Hello Again,
I've seen some technical specs on the Big Ear antenna, and I'm
wondering how much gain one could get at 1420 with a reflector
about 10x24 feet? It looks like the really hard part would be the
design of the curved (2nd) reflector. Anyways, I wanted to ask
the pros what they think about a reduced scale Big Ear..

Dr. SETI, I didn't realize how much of your stuff
I've been reading over the years.
I was re-reading some stuff in an old
Microwave handbook and saw you were the
author of a whole bunch of that book. You
stuff is great! Easier to understand than
most. It's no wonder you can answer all
these microwave questions.. You wrote the book!!
