  • GOES-18 First Light Imagery
    Earth from Orbit: NOAA Debuts First Imagery from GOES-18 May 11, 2022 On May 11, 2022, NOAA shared the first images of the Western Hemisphere from its GOES-18 satellite. The satellite’s Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) instrument recently captured stunning views of Earth. GOES-18, NOAA’s newest geostationary satellite, launched on March 1. The ABI views Earth with sixteen different […]
    A collection of PowerShell scripts for doing cool things with Pieter’s goestools software. Wanted to share this work posted over on Github by JVital2013. A series of power shell scripts that work with goestools. The first and most useful to me right now is goesrecv-rtltcp.ps1 This script allows you to monitor the RF spectrum of […]
  • AWS-1 , AWS- 3 and LIGADO interference and HRIT/GRB, HRPT
    UPDATED 05-04-2022 Electromagnetic interference (EMI) refers to the disruption of a system’s operation due to an electromagnetic field created by the same or another electronic system. EMI is common and can affect any electronic system. The fifth generation of mobile technologies (5G) is no exception. 4G and 5G deployments can cause serious EMI issues too, […]

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”.
