There are several Jupiter radiotelescope plans available on the web. American ones usually end up using american components which are more difficult to source in Europe, but, I have come across a version of NASA's public outreach Jupiter radiotelescope, the JOVE project, in September's 2010 Everyday Practical Electronics Magazine and its design has been made simpler and with European components - (Australian ones too... let's see how that goes).
You can find an extract of that magazine, with the related article, on this project files section. link: https://cdn.hackaday.io/files/11916509814144/epe_jupiter_radiotelescope.pdf
For our american readers, i'll leave the webpage address of Nasa's outreach decametric radiotelescope project: http://radiojove.gsfc.nasa.gov/
I'll be sourcing components and posting them on the project's BOM.

Of the things needed to make this project work, most can be acquired from vendors. The radio receivers will have to be hand made. While they are being built i decided to substitute them with a common radio shortwave receiver, so that software can be developed, systems integrated and bugs knocked off.
You can have a look at what this development hardware stack looks like:
