Handbook on Radio Astronomy

The Handbook on Radio Astronomy has been developed by experts of Working Party 7D of ITU-R Study Group 7 (Science Services) that is responsible for radio astronomy. This Handbook is not intended as a source book on radio astronomy, but rather deals with such aspects of radio astronomy that are relevant to frequency coordination as the management of radio spectrum usage in order to minimize interference between radiocommunication services.

Hide / Show Abstract

This Handbook is concerned principally with aspects of radio astronomy that are relevant to frequency coordination, that is, the usage of the radio spectrum in a regulated manner to avoid interference by mutual agreement between the radio services. On an international scale, spectrum usage is regulated through the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), which is a specialized agency of the United Nations Organization.
