  • Going Green, and to Extremes!
    Going Green, and to Extremes! Sometimes, you just have to share, and this really deserves to be seen! This is Manuel Lausmann’s (DO3MLA) very impressive remote, solar AND wind-powered satellite ground receiving station. Located in North Norway Sør-Helgeland ( JP65EQ) in the Manuel has built a self-powered APT/LRPT and weather station powered by a 24 […]
  • Vitality GOES
    Vitality GOES- A new tool to work with imagery created by goestools 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. The author has written a great description of the software package he created and has […]

    GOES-18 HRIT- First Light Imagery As planned, GOES-18 completed its slow drift after its first phase of post-launch testing (PLT). Arriving at 136.8° West, GOES-18 is in position for its second round of PLT’s. GOES-18, which launched on March 1, 2022, was initially delivered to 89.5 degrees west over the Central U.S. and began post-launch […]

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. 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!

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.

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”.
