DIY Satellite Tracker

I’ve recently finished building and testing a simple and low-cost DIY satellite tracker based on the SARCNET satellite tracker project by VK3FOWL and VK3YSP.

The SARCNET page mentions that at least 737 hams (as of May 2020) reported to have successfully built a similar tracker. You, too, can build one! Imagine having this tracker on your next satellite demo and local hamvention exhibit!

It works with an app such as Gpredict and tracks the satellite automatically!
