    The author discusses two Bachelor Engineering degree projects in the field of radioastronomy. The first is the design, construction and, hopefully, the operation of a radio telescope to receive signals from the Sun. The other is a similar exercise where the objective is to detect solar flares by an indirect radio method. Both topics are too extensive for any one student to tackle successfully in t...

    For more than 30 years, the 305 meter diameter radio telescope at the Arecibo Observatory has been a unique tool. Scientists have used it to study the Earth's atmosphere, asteroids and even distant galaxies. The Arecibo facility is a part of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC). The telescope has been an extremely productive research instrument. However, users have been hampered by ... View full abstract»

    In a public switched telephone network (PSTN), the control information is exchanged among the network elements by signaling. The early telephone system used circuit associated signaling or inband signaling where the same transmission channel was shared by both signaling and user information (voice or data). Another signaling method is common channel signaling (CCS). Unlike the circuit associated s... View full abstract»
