Long Range Communications using Ham Radios and Satellites - Geek Prepper

I was tinkering with my Baofeng radio today while doing some research on communications, when I made a discovery. you can do Long Range Communications using handheld Ham Radios and Satellites! As long as there are satellites orbiting the earth, you can communicate hundreds of miles using a handheld radio (HT). This really expands the abilities of the Baofeng handhelds. How To Get Started Here are some simple steps to get you started down the satellite communications path. WORK SAT 11 2015. Homepage of PA1IVO - A Multi-purpose Portable Setup. // Home / Amateur Radio / Multi-purpose Portable Setup At the AMSAT-UK colloquium 2011, I gave a short presentation about my experiences with my portable setup, called "A Multipurpose Portable Setup".

Based on this presentation, Andreas Bilsing DL2LUX invited me to write an article about this subject for the AMSAT-DL Journal. The article,"Eine tragbare Mehrzweck-Satellitenstation", was translated from English to German by Andreas and appeared in the March 2012 issue of the AMSAT-DL Journal. The English version of the article appeared later in two issues of OSCAR NEWS of AMSAT-UK (July and September 2012). The original English text can be read below (not all pictures appeared in the article in OSCAR NEWS). SDR reception of Digital Amateur TV from the ISS. Since May 2015 amateur radio operators can receive digital video directly from the International Space Station (ISS), at considerably higher quality than with earlier modes such as slow-scan TV.

SDR reception of Digital Amateur TV from the ISS

This is rarely highlighted because currently the ISS only transmits a blank test pattern, but there is hope that this new capability will soon be used for live contacts with astronauts and possibly for streaming scientific experiments, extravehicular activities, docking operations, or simply live views of the Earth from space. Digital video on the amateur bands is known as "Digital Amateur TV", "Digital ATV" or "DATV". Amateurs typically use the same standards as mainstream digital TV broadcasts: DVB-S (satellite) and DVB-T (terrestrial). In the context of DATV on the ISS, "Ham Video" refers to the on-board transmitter, and "Ham TV" designates the video downlink combined with a voice uplink for two-way contacts. Link budget .

Black Horizon: How to build a $5,000 dollar UHF SATCOM antenna for under $20 Part 4-1. DIY: Military UHF SATCOM antennaPART FOUR-1By Steve Douglass Authors note: The construction part (since it is complicated ) of this ongoing series of articles will be spread out over several postings.

Black Horizon: How to build a $5,000 dollar UHF SATCOM antenna for under $20 Part 4-1

Be patient! Following parts will be posted shortly. First a disclaimer: You may or may not be able to build your DIY SATCOM antenna for under twenty bucks. Yeah- I know that’s the title of this series of articles - but how expensive your antenna will be is conditional on the tools you have on hand and the antenna materials you may or may not have access to. Some of the parts I already had were aluminum antenna elements (rods) salvaged from on old two-meter Ham antenna, coax and various RF connectors, not to mention a sturdy tripod (used and bought originally for $10 on Ebay) also some hollow antenna tubes from a broken Radio Shack Discone antenna.

One could easily use aluminum metal (welding) rods also available at Home Depot. First cut a length of ½ inch PVC pipe to 32 inches. How to build a satellite receiving station using a Raspberry Pi. Space and satellites are something that only few people are fortunate enough to interact with.

How to build a satellite receiving station using a Raspberry Pi

However, this is starting to change due to the rapid growth in capability of consumer electronics. In fact, you can receive and decode transmissions from satellites using only a Raspberry Pi, a USB software-defined radio receiver, and a few other cheap parts. In this blog post, I'll describe in detail how to put together such a system. Experimenting with receiving satellite signals is a lot of fun. Also, by receiving data from these satellites and sharing it with the satellite owners, you can help their scientific missions. Goal. Cheap Satellite Receive Station with RTL-SDR. ARISS-SSTV images.
