Results With a 3 m Dish @ 1294 MHz in 2 MHz Bandwidth

The 3 m dish used by OE5JFL to detect B0329+54 in a 5 hour long data run...

Hannes says...

"  After maybe 10 observations with negative result, I finally  detected the pulsar also with my 3m dish at home, which I use mainly for terrestrial contacts.
The antenna is placed on top of a building with no obstacles around. This is good for operating tropo, but worse for observing pulsars, because I pick up a lot of RFI.
It was a nice experience to see that it is possible to detect a strong pulsar even with moderate sized antenna without large bandwidth.  "

A nice result indeed !
