Abstract

Planning to perform radio astronomy related observation necessarily requires a specific device known as radio telescope. These specially designed instruments observe the longest wavelengths of light, ranging from 1 millimeter to over 10 meters long. It offers various avenue of observation such as continuum observation, solar wind observation, up to spectral line observation. In archipelagic countries like Philippines, opportunities for radio astronomy observations can offer wide variety of location. That features the regions of high frequency and low frequency were identified. The researcher was able specify the characteristics of each regions as suitable site for radio observations including the types of observation to be made. © 2019 Published under license by IOP Publishing Ltd.
