Joining the satellite hunting community

🔧As part of the internal OHB Hellas activities, a weather satellite signal reception system was setup at the premises of the company. 

📡It utilizes a VHF antenna and it is connected to the open-source SatNOGS network developed by Libre Space Foundation, contributing to the collaborative effort of the community with its data measurements. 

🛰️The main signals targeted for acquisition are those of the NOAA weather satellites. Below you can see some samples of images received. Hunting satellites is now a part of OHB Hellas’ activities! 

For example, you can see below an image from the satellite NOAA-15 taken on 2023-08-28 07:02:23 (UTC). The image was transferred directly from the satellite to our antenna on the rooftop of the office.
