These wonderful tiny pocket satellites are designed in Hungary by the professors and students of Budapest University of Technology and Economics: “Apart from the units ensuring its basic operations, the payload of SMOG-P is a spectrum analyzer, measuring man-made electromagnetic pollution in Read more about RTL-SDR V3 based basic receiver station for SMOG-P and ATL-1 Nano Satellites[…]
Have seen an example of “bare LNB” reception of QO-100 GEO ham satellite from Andreas Preuss, DL5APR. That was quite shocking… So tried to reproduce that experiment using my own receiver setup. Looks like its works fine for stronger signals! I can imagine adding some tricks to the LNB’s horn antenna to improve it’s gain Read more about Es’hail 2 / Qatar-OSCAR 100 bare LNB vs Parabolic dish reception test[…]
As indicated by ham users the schematic is low quality in the PDF article released by TAPR. Here sharing a better quality picture, hopefully that helps.
