Low-frequency radio telescopes are cheap and useful devices for the investigation of terrestrial and extra-terrestrial emissions. These emissions come either from the Sun and the planet Jupiter to terrestrial emissions. This project aims to investigate the Very Low Frequency (VLF) waves from mid-August to October 2019 using Radio JOVE (20 MHz) and SSID (3-30 kHz) to observe for the occurrence of solar flares and see how if the radio telescopes that the team set up is reliable. This will allow us future students aspiring to learn about astronomy to examine solar flares in detail during the upcoming solar maximum. Not many flares were detected as this period happens to be a solar minimum. However, a series of flares occurred between 30 September 2019 and 1 October 2019, which the telescopes have been able to detect, particularly SSID.
