Callisto measures radio emission from solar flares and coronal mass ejections in the range 45-870 MHz. We have been testing the system in Trinity College Dublin, before its move to a radio-quiet site in Birr Castle. There it will be used to study the effects of solar radio bursts on wireless communications, GPS and electrical power distribution.
