Abstract

The Solar Radio Astronomy Group within the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation's Division of Radiophysics built the world's first radiospectrograph at Penrith (Australia) in 1948. The instrument was used to study radio emission from the active Sun over the continuous frequency range of 70 to 130 MHz. This led to the first spectral classification of solar radio bursts which advanced the scientific study of space research by the real time monitoring of the active corona.
