Really BIG Radiotelescopes
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This Geocache is to find big Radio Telescopes all over the World.
The one I use as Reference can be turned into different directions - also for this cache it is NOT necessary that the Telescope can be turned. It only has to have a Reflector Diameter bigger than 50 meter.
The normal Rules for Locationless Caches apply:
- NO Internet Finds or old vacation Fotos - show a Picture WITH the GPSr to prove that
- Only 1 Log per Telescope
- Only 1 Log per Cacher (diferent finds can be made as Notes...)
Please give some Informations about the Telescope youre Logging....
But now more about this one:
The Effelsberg Radio Telescope in Germany
- one of the two largest fuklly steerable parabolic antennas in the World!
- Reflector Diameter 100m
- Azimuth Range 480°
- Elevation Movement from 7° to 94°
