Working Amateur Satellites on a Budget

Talk by Heather Nickalls (she/her) πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§

Friday from 1:50 PM - 2:20 PM in Stage A

Always thought it was expensive to receive signals from Space? In this talk I will go through the simple homebrew antennas and cheap (around Β£10) receivers that you can use to get such diverse things as weather satellite images, pictures from the ISS, receive telemetry from the orbiting CubeSats, and even begin communicating with the first Amateur Geosynchronous Satellite, QO-100 where you can receive TV pictures from amateurs across the world with a rust old satellite dish and a cheap LNB. It is amazing what you can do with a piece of bent water pipe or a coat hanger!
