The GEM 5 GHz Receiver System

GEM 5 GHz Rationale

The frequency 5 GHz was chosen because the Galaxy produces a small byt significant radiation signal at 5 GHz, which is beginning to be sufficiently high to provide a good lever arm for extrapolation. The apparatus while still large can both provide good resolution and special equipment for an absolute calibration.

Reports on the 5 GHz Receiver

The project has been supported in part by the US Department of Energy, by the US National Science Foundation, by the Progetto Italia Antartide, by INPE-Brazil, and by Colciencias of Colombia. Some of the publications to date are on the following publication list.
