Hello all!

Im Roberto from Costa Rica, my amateur radio callsign is TI2RF, now learnig about linux and Raspberry´s, my gound station is working now, right now making a fine test up. Every body is wlcome to shedule observation via TI2RF. 73

Hello all,

We are a team of students/faculty dedicated to installing a working ground station at Metropolitan State University in Denver, Colorado. MSU Denver is becoming a hub for aerospace students so satellite tracking capabilities are a huge deal! SatNOGS has been a huge help to us, thank you! We look forward to contributing data once we are up an running.
Ad Astera!

Hi @ti2rf,

Welcome to the community! Feel free to reach us here or in our chat platform if you have any questions on Linux or Raspberry Pi. Your station works fine, I would suggest to try different RF gains that may help to receive better the satellites.

Hi @msudenvermoc,

It’s always a pleasure to hear that SatNOGS helps people to get involved with satellites and space. This is the mission and the vision of Libre Space Foundation, make space accessible to everyone!

Hi everyone,
I am happy to meet you and people with similar passion,
Congratulations on this amazing achievement.

Me, a Computer Engineer for 20 years,
Worked on many projects, mainly IoT and Home Automation, Applications including web and VR and mobile.
I like to launch my own tiny 1Lb satellite to LEO using low cost commercial satellite companies.

I have faith in humanity and Science and a unique creator of this amazing universe.
I hope to learn from you a lot.
Best

Welcome Bahsoun, hope you enjoy exploring the Libre Space community.

Hello,
I am HS3LIQ/Wiwat from Thailand, interested in amateur radio, satellite and digital. The mode around the station may be very disturbing. Make observation from the image Or incomplete audio Due to being in a crowded communication area but I will try to improve the station To continue to receive better satellite signals. Thank you. :smile:

Hi,

I have a pi4 and rtl with HF dipole ready and connected to the network!

I work for a small aerospace co and we have a bidirectional ground station on our roof for downloads and command control of Astro Digital satellites, which fly our flight software. The antenna is I believe a dual yagi rotator that tracks in two axis. Images are passed on to NOAA and other customers; the IR camera has been particularly helpful for firefighters in California, since it can see through some smoke; images help them determine vegetation potential fire load (how much fuel is on the ground at that moment).

I am primarily a software and systems engineer and build various apps and sim and emulators. With my colleagues I am making and delivering four emulators to ULA for their Orion / SLS missions in support of Artemis 2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemis_2#/media/File:Artemis_2_Trajectory.jpg

But I am new to RF and learning much with SatNOGS!

The setup was not too difficult. If all goes well I hope to help some school students run a ground station. Thanks to libre and all of you here for your contributions and kindness!

Welcome @hs3liq and @dru2. Hopefully you’ll find everything you need to get yourselves on the network and making observations. There is a wiki and a riot /irc channel as well as this forum if you have any questions .

Hiya,

I’m Jeff Moe from Colorado, USA. I’m a free software sysadmin and have done various open source hardware projects. I’m 100% new to satellites and amateur radio. I set up a couple of ground stations.

Happy hacking,

-Jeff

Hi @jebba ,

Welcome and thanks for the messages; I hope your rotator build and the board soldering goes well!

I am maybe 40 or 50 miles south of you; I was surprised at the amount of differences we get for overhead passes of the same spacecraft. Having more ground stations is especially useful for LEO.
