Who is it for?

Amateur radio is a great hobby for tech lovers and today there are a variety of satellites that anyone can listen in on using cheap SDR equipment (Software Defined Radio) connected to your computer. Receive simple telemetry-data, download satellite imagery or even try out two-way communication.

Many “CubeSATs” are now also in orbit – small, privately funded satellites built by schools, universities and enthusiasts. Even the international space station regularly transmits images by radio, using what is called “Slow Scan TV”.
