Radio Observations
Meteor Radio Observations & Radio Networks
Finally had the opportunity to set up the equipment and scan the meteorites again - here is my information:
Location: Outskirts of Vienna / Southern area
Hardware Module - SDRPlay1
Software: HDSDR V2.76a / Version March 17, 2018 + Laptop with W7
Antenna: Lightweight yagi 144 MHz 5ele - 1,5m Boom

Period: 12.07.2018 / From 20:00 CEST (18:00 UT) to 22:15 CEST (20:15 UT)
I am an amateur astronomer since 1980 and have been operating the radio astronomy / meteorscan with the following equipment for one year:
Hardware Module - SDRPlay1
Software: HDSDR V2.76a (March 17, 2018 ) + Laptop with W7
Antenna: Lightweight yagi 144 MHz 5ele - 1,5m Boom

In 2018 I observed the Lyrids and Eta-Aquarids by radio astronomy.
Results Lyrids:
Location: Austria / Cit

I am now using the following set up:
-Raspberry Pi 3

2x Neo M8T
Radio link - 433 MHz telemetry kit (SiK radio) and it is matched via mission planner.
Base station: I power the radio with an adapter (micro usb end) and the 6-wire Pixhawk cable goes to the telemetry slots of the board and that's how I power the board. The inputs of the telemetry on the board are - Gnd, SDA, SCL, T
Hello all,
First the good news: I was able to pull in WCCO 830 AM in Minneapolis from my home here in metro Detroit for the first time. (That's approximately 540 miles.) I'm using Exray's version of a Hiker's set along with a loop antenna which is basically a hula-hoop with five turns of #22 magnet wire, a dual 365pf variable cap and one single turn of litz to inductively couple the set to the
Hello everybody!

Has anyone thought about using the RSP2 for radio astronomy ?

I am currently setting up a 4.8 m dish for pulsar Observation and besides other receivers I would ike to use the RSP2 as well.

I know that this will be a very, very demanding task, however backed by a study of radio astronomy in the late 70ies and 35 yrs of experience in the space industry (physicist, phd.)
In the evening on 27th(UT), Radio Meteor Observation in the world caught a possibility of lambda-Ursae Majorids activity.

This was analyzed and announced by Mr.Hirofumi Sugimoto (JPN).

Mr.Sowa reported an increase of meteor echoes to him first.
After that, Mr.Hirofumi analyzed radio meteor observations data in the world and caught a possibility of this meteor shower activity.
