Radio & antennas

Listening to aircrafts and receiving images from the satellites

In the previous article, we discussed how to calculate and build a simple Yagi-Uda antenna.
Now it’s time to play with this antenna and receive some interesting signals.

This will be mostly video post. I filmed all experiments and created brief videos.
Hope they gonna be interesting, video is in Russian, but English subtitles are also available.

As the receiver, I’ll use a popular rtl-sdr receiver

Software – GQRX on Linux mint.

First tests of the antenna.
