Newcomer Help: Requesting an Observation


#1

Hello!

I’m very new to the SatNOGS community and am in the process of setting up my own ground station as a part of a university CubeSAT project. I noticed that there are many other ground stations observing 24/7, but could not find a way to schedule an observation from another ground station. Is there a mechanism to request an observation from someone?

Thanks!

Hey @moose,

To schedule observations you have to be a member of the community of ground station owners. To become one it is as simple as setting up your ground station in the network! Don’t mind if it is work in progress, you can set it up in testing mode for the beginning.

Please see the wiki for details!
