Decoding Satellites with SatNOGS
Monday 10:40 a.m.–11:25 a.m.
Target audience: User
The past few months at our local amateur radio club we have been experimenting with working Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites using handheld equipment. That's where I stumbled into the SatNOGS project. While my rotator has not finished being built this talk will partly be about building the rotator, how the client and network API fits together and different ways you can get involved in the project.
Scott spent his formative years running Linux and looking very hard for a 'forced' daemon that should be checked whenever starting up after an unclean shutdown of hard drives. It wasn't until 2000 that he reluctantly agreed forced did not exist and has been facepalming that ever since although the exploration into the kernel and Linux systems has led to a successful career as a sysadmin and developer.
Scott runs the local Tasmanian Linux Users Group meetups in Hobart and likes to promote libre and open source products and projects wherever he can as it's usually the right tool for the job. He is currently working as a developer for automated aquaculture systems, which are usually deployed in harsh marine environments.
