I’ve reached out to University of Alaska Fairbanks https://asf.alaska.edu/ to see who to speak with regarding the possibility of setting up a SatNOGS ground station there. There is currently zero coverage in that entire high-latitude region.
rtl-sdr and a US$50 yagi in a fixed position on a rooftop would be an easy start. I’'m willing to donate some equipment and have it shipped there or consult with UA faculty/staff/students to engage them in adding a low-cost downlink ground station.
If I have over-stepped my bounds as a SatNOGS community member, please let me know.
