Amateur Radio Satellites

Since I became an astronomy enthusiast, I have been tracking satellites visually and using a telescope. It was only a few years ago when I learned that I can do more than just track the satellites, I can actually send and receive signals from them! In 2017, I acquired an amateur radio license from our local telecommunications bureau so I could legally operate a radio transmitter (two-way radio) capable of sending and receiving signals to and from amateur radio satellites in orbit!

This page documents my progress in accessing amateur radio satelites in low-earth orbit using low-cost and homebrewed radio equipment.
