This bachelor thesis covers the design and construction of the back-end and frame of a Pickett-Potter horn telescope at 11 GHz to observe the cosmic microwave background. The back-end of the telescope contains two amplifers and a band pass filter. The choice of these components is elaborated in the form of theory and experiments. The main factor in choosing an amplifier relied on the effective noise temperature. The construction of the frame for the telescope entailed decisions on functionality, size, positioning of extra devices needed for power, calibration and slewing to create a fully functional telescope.
