Celebrating the 1,000,000th SatNOGS observation!

Minutes ago, observation #1000000 got uploaded on the SatNOGS Network by station #2 in Bloomigton, Indiana USA operated by cshields receiving data from UNISAT-6 satellite.

This marks the continuous efforts of hundreds of owners of SatNOGS ground-stations operating numerous ground-stations globally (more than 170 stations on-line, more than 90 in testing and more soon to come) while continuously enhancing the network software and hardware solutions.

Observations of the ISS Spacewalk Captured

On the 29th May cosmonauts,  Oleg Kononenko and Flight Alexey Ovchinin, undertook an EVA (spacewalk) outside the ISS to retrieve science experiments, install some new handrails and conduct some other routine maintenance. Numerous successful observations of the EVA were captured by ground stations on the network and you can listen to the EVA communications. This post on the Libre Space community forum has links to all the observations.

Antenna Types Comparison

SatNOGS legend Corey Shields has begun some comparative work on antennas. Corey is using the same location and the same observations to test directional ax/el yagi, a fixed low-gain yagi and finally a discone. It’s interesting work and Corey is posting his results and discussion here.
