Amateur Deep Space Reception
Paul Marsh, M0EYT gives an introduction into deep space mega-DX, the equipment needed and the techniques used to identify extremely weak signals coming from man-made space probes in various parts of our solar system. X-Band (8.4GHz) is the primary band of discussion but Paul also talks briefly about S and Ka reception equipment and antennas. You can receive signals from spacecraft in excess of 1 billion Km with a modest size dish in your garden. If you have an interest in EME or microwave weak signal reception, Amateur DSR can help you push the limits of what is possible with home-built equipment. In early 2018 Paul was involved in confirming a signal reading from what is believed to be of Image, a Nasa satellite lost and presumed dead in 2005.

The SWC Saturday net is 19.00 to 20.00 on Slot 2, TG950; plus quite a lot of general activity at other times.
Note that Slot 1, TG9 can be used at the same time due to the miracle which is DMR, so local use is not frozen out when the cluster is in use.
