Dr. Chris Bridges (M0GKK) has requested that the ground stations that receive STRaND-1 telemetry to send there .kss files to strand.messages [at] gmail.com
The following combination works great when you want to receive and decode the telemetry data: FUNcube Dongle Pro+, SDRSharp 1144, RealTec Audio Mixer, UZ7HO G3RUH Soundmodem and AGW OnlineKiss from DK3WN. The software can be downloaded at the following locations:
- SDRSharp SDR software
- Soundmodem from UZ7HO G3RUH
- DK3WN AGW OnlineKiss
I don’t have any hands-on experience with it, but I can imagine that a RTL-SDR dongle will also work when someone wants to receive the telemetry data from STRaND-1. If you don’t have any experience with Sound card modem reception take a look at my Sound card modem page.
