Space and Satellites
- Amateur Satellite Page
From N7RYW -- This site provides links to a wide variety of PC software for satellite work.
The Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation Web Server.
The Radio Amateur Satellite Organisation of the United Kingdom.
- Basic Satellites
An excellent introduction to satellites by Stephen Holmstead
- Current two-line element sets from the Air Force Institute of Technology:
- DOVE Satellite Decoder Program (V2.0)
A new version of the DOVE satellite decoder program (V2.0) -- It will decode the telemetry data that comes from the DOVE amateur radio satellite. In this release are numerous bug fixes and some new graphing capabilities. It requires windows 3.1, a packet TNC and a 2 meter rig. This program is FREEWARE
- Keplerian Elements
From AMSAT -- Keplerian elements are the inputs to a standard mathematical model
of spacecraft orbits. With the "keps", the correct time, and your station location, you can compute when the satellite will be in view and where to point your antennas. See also the tutorial on Keplerian elements and the explanation of the formats used in these files.
Fast, accurate, and easy to use satellite tracking software from Northern Lights Software.
- Radio-Sky Publishing
A site for amateur radio astronomers, a small but growing group of people who make radio observations of cosmic phenomena. Radio-Sky sells books and computer programs to help facilitate these efforts.
- Sat FAQ Answers
- SAREX information
The Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiment (SAREX) is a long-running program to use amateur radio equipment on board the Space Shuttle to involve students in exchanging questions and answers with astronauts on orbit. More than 200 schools have participated to date. It is also used to conduct communications experiments with amateur radio operators on the ground.
