Re: Using satellite doppler effect to determine position

I am wondering the same thing, since it also my grad project. We have recieved signals from a satellite so far, but haven't been able to calculate its doppler shift yet. My guess is, doppler shift will only provide us the satellite's radial velocity. But that is probably the case for only 1 station ...

Re: Recieving signal from any flyby satellite

NOAA are American satellites but they pass over the entire globe equally. If you look in Orbitron you'll be able to determine when they'll pass over your location. Happens a few times a day. Hello its me again, From the leads you have given us, we were able to build a V-dipole antenna and we reciev...

Re: Recieving signal from any flyby satellite

If it's just the doppler effect that you want to look at you could simply receive signal from the NOAA satellites. The doppler drift is quite noticeable with these LEO satellites from the signal. Here's a tutorial on decoding http://www.rtl-sdr.com/rtl-sdr-tutorial-receiving-noaa-weather-satellite-...

Recieving signal from any flyby satellite

Hello everyone so, I am a senior Space Engineering student and I have a graduation project to complete. I have joined the community believing that I might get some tips regarding this issue. So we want to recieve signals from satellites, then we plan to decode it and by using doppler effect we want ...
