  • Vitality GOES
    Vitality GOES- A new tool to work with imagery and data created by goestools and/or Satdump Jamie Vital has built a Web App for showcasing Geostationary Weather Satellite Data. The software is designed to display text and images received from GOES satellites via goestools and satdump. UPDATE: 1/27/2023 The author of Vitality GOES just pushed […]
  • The Demise of Meteor M2
    It looks likely that Meteor M2 permanently failed on 24 December 2022. Meteor M2 has had difficulty in the past with orientation problems and has typically recovered with help from ground engineers. However, this time this does not look to be the case. The last LRPT transmission occurred on 24 December 2022, repeated attempts to […]
  • Online Dish Pointer
    NEW Dish Pointer for Geostationary Satellites. I created a Satellite Dish Pointer page over the weekend, added in all 539 current geostationary satellites, and added a map to find your location and then automatically calculate the Longitude, Azimuth,(true north), Azimuth (magnetic north), Elevation, and Skew angles for both 0° and 90° degree style dishes. Magnetic Declination tables […]
  • The Kessler Syndrome
    Updated January 19, 2023 On 11 January 2007, China conducted an anti-satellite missile test. A China weather satellite—the FY-1C polar-orbiting satellite of the Fengyun series, at an altitude of 865 kilometers (537 mi), with a mass of 750 kilograms (1,650 lb) —was destroyed by a kinetic kill vehicle traveling at a speed of 8 km/s (18,000 mph) in the opposite direction. A Head-On Engagement attack like this has […]

This site is designed by me to help out folks like you, who use radios, namely Software-Defined Radios or SDR’s for experimenting, scanning, decoding, etc. Of particular note- Radio reception of Polar Orbiting Satellites, and Geo Stationary Satellites. As I experiment and learn more, I add to this site all the little interesting things I pick up. 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.

If you like what I do please support me on Ko-fi, It really means a lot, every bit helps!

I am just someone who likes to experiment with a lot of different tech. From old tube radios to the latest in SDR.

I am a history buff, and a technology geek, born 100 years too 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 continually updated, 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”.
