Earth Venus Earth communications at


#1

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
(DH2VA).

The AMSAT-DL web page 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://freenet-homepage.de/dl4yhf/spectra1.html).

I hope everyone joins in congratulating this team on their multiple year
effort and outstanding achievement.
