Abstract

This thesis presents thework I have done as part of a project to build a radio telescope to observe the CMB at 11 GHz. It covers some basic radio astronomy theory and the weather conditions in Groningen. After this it focusses on controlling the telescope and its measuring equipment through a Raspberry Pi. It will conclude with observations of the Sun and a satellite to verify the beam size. This was found to be 12:07 +/- 0:13 ° using the Sun and 12:61 +/- 0:19 ° using a satellite, in agreement with expectations.
