I am really happy to tell everyone of a terrific “SDR” experiment. HI.
Our colleagues in AMSAT-DL have been working towards demonstrating
several of the pieces to allow for interplanetary communications in the
event the Phase V mission to Mars comes to fruition.
A team consisting of many well known amateurs including Wolfgang Büscher
(DL4YHF), Freddy de Guchteneire (ON6UG), Hermann Hagner (DK8CI),
Michael Lengrüsser (DD5ER) , Karl Meinzer (DJ4ZC), James Miller
(G3RUH), Max Münich (DJ1CR), Hartmut Paesler (DL1YDD), Achim Vollhardt
The AMSAT-DL web page is here:
and the English press release is here:
In the photographs attached to these pages and press releases, one can
see the SDR-IQ and Spectrum Lab. Congrats to RFSPACE
(http://rfspace.com/Home.html) and Wolfgang DL4YHF
I hope everyone joins in congratulating this team on their multiple year
effort and outstanding achievement.
