Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
Carl Sagan

Welcome to the home of USradioguy.com. I started this site as a spin-off of my other site, Dodgem37.com. In that site, I documented my restoration of a 1953 Dodge M37, and my process of restoring vintage and military radios. BUT, you probably didn’t come here for that. So what’s this site about?

First Off, there is a Menu at the top of every page that takes you to the various pages within this site.

This site is designed by me to help out folks like you, use radios, namely Software-Defined Radios or SDR’s for experimenting, scanning, decoding, etc. In this case Radio reception of Polar Orbiting Satellites, and Geo Stationary Satellites. As time permits, I’ll also add pages on Aircraft tracking, pager decoding, Radiosonde Weather Balloon Tracking, and more. I am interested in learning all about this stuff, and I just want to “pay it forward” and help out others who might be interested in trying this out.

So just lay my cards out on the table, I am not an expert, nor do I pretend to be, I am just someone who likes to experiment with a lot of different tech. From old tube radios to the latest in SDR.

The way is was.

I am a history buff, and a technology geek, born 100 years to late and 100 years too early. I hope this site helps you out in exploring just some of the interesting things software-defined radio can offer.

You’ll find links to my different pages on the Menu at the top of every page. This is a work in progress, so stop back sometime and have a look!

And now for something completely different… I have been interested in science, and space in general because of one influential man, Carl Sagan. Since I read his books, Cosmos, Contact, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space, Broca’s Brain, and saw him lecture, I have always felt the need to look deeper and to look up, if for no other reason, than to just “wonder”.
