Visualizing Broadcast Satellite Signals with the RTL-SDR

Over on Gough’s Tech blog, Lui Gough has posted about his experiences with visualizing broadcast satellite signals with the RTL-SDR. In his post he shows how to receive broadcast satellite signals by using a LNB, or low noise block downconverter, which allows the RTL-SDR to receive satellite frequencies which are typically out of the range of the RTL-SDR.

Later in the post he also shows what several broadcast satellite signals look like on the waterfall, as well as some of their telemetry signals.
