Searching for Fast Radio Bursts

FRBs are results of partially unknown astrophysical phenomena: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fast_radio_burst
They have been observed down to 400 MHz. I'm not aware of attempts to find them at lower frequencies.
Could the Kiwi TDOA maybe be used to detect and locate radio bursts of extraterrestrial origin on 10m?

  • I'd like to think it would one day be possible, but several of us are already having difficulty in just detecting Galactic noise at frequencies above 10MHz, so I think we still have a long way to go before we would stand a chance of hearing any FRB's :-(

    Personally, I'm still waiting to hear my first bursts of Jupiter noise via my KiWi ..............

  • It is not very much known about FRBs, we don't know about their amplitude and occurrence (if at all) on 30 MHz.
    I just thought it might be worth to have a peek, if it could be done without much effort.
