DROWNING IN ÆTHER

Entry

I have been following this satellite for some weeks now, but its orbit is never close enough to receive its signal. On the 28th the visibility is only marginal but I still attempt to capture it. With my YAGI antenna packed, I go to a location in the vicinity of my studio with a good view and no obstacles from east to southwest. I tune my SDR to 237 MHz and patiently await. Thirty long minutes pass before the signal finally appears. I try scanning the frequency spectrum and different filters but the satellite is not in range. According to the calculations of my satellite tracker it will change its course of the following days.
