Welcome to

Conveniently located on the third planet orbiting Sol
(a G-type yellow dwarf star).

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.

  • Simon’s World Map
    UPDATE: 11/26/2022 Simon has updated the map (1.3.5) with a few new options that I asked for, one was a lighter track for the satellites so they would show on darker maps like my geo-ring maps (below). Zoom now makes use of the whole screen in Zoom mode even if the aspect ratio was not […]
  • NOAA-15 AVHRR Issues
    Updated 10/22/2022 NOAA-15 AVHRR degraded image data. NOAA AVHRR HAS RECOVERED…However, there are still some gaps in scanning and engineers are working to sort it ou Starting on October 18th, 2022, NOAA-15 suffered an issue with its AVHRR Scan Motor. This is not the first time it has happened to NOAA-15. In fact, it 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”.
