satellite listening on Schlossberg, Graz, 29.5.2011

satellite listening The first tryout was fun, because we talked with a lot of people about what we are doing there; but we didnt really hear anything, the receiver or the cable or the antenna?

We tried to catch amateur radio satellites, such as FO-29, SO-50, AO-27.

This first attempt was also just to see how we can actually do that on the Schlossberg.

We met some amateur radio friends at the Schlossberg and already agreed on repeating the session with more and diverse equipment.
