Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 April, the CAMRAS foundation organized the second European conference on amateur radio astronomy, EUCARA-2016, in Dwingeloo where EUCARA was a guest at ASTRON.
EUCARA-2016 coincided with the sixtieth anniversary of the inauguration of the Dwingeloo Radio Telescope in 1956. EUCARA is a conference for, but also by, amateur radio astronomers. The program consisted of lectures, demonstrations and posters of the participants in EUCARA-2016. In addition, EUCARA-2016 offered a measuring lab, a planetarium, demonstrations of radio astronomy with the Dwingeloo Radio Telescope and at the end a tour of the Westerbork Radio Telescope.
The conference website is www.eucara.nl. There you will find more information about the program and where most presentations of the lectures can be seen (or will be).
The first EUCARA was held in 2014 at the Astropeiler Radio Telecope in Stockert Germany.
