I live in British Columbia Canada - not too far from the US border (hoping I will see a few satellites here). I will be building the antenna rotor and had a couple of questions regarding the antenna. Apologies if this info is somewhere else …
I see there is a new Helical antenna tuned for a specific frequency … is the satnogs project intended to receive just one frequency, or are there other frequencies that would require more than one antenna on the same rotor?
I gather jumping into the latest Rotor and helical antenna design is the way to go?
I saw that there was talk of a ‘newbie guide’ a while back. If there is one, can someone point me to it?
I am so looking looking forward to this! I have many years of ground station design/install and satellite payload testing, but have been away from that for a few years. I am the co-founder of a local Maker Space and this is going to be one of our projects.
