This project is to construct a Ground Station for the University of Southampton's UoS³ Cubesat Programme. The objective is to construct a reliable facility with which to Receive the Downlink from the UoS3 Cubesat, and Transmit any Telecommand required during a Pass.
SUSF have been offered this role due to our expertise and experience in long-range UHF radio links used with our High Altitude Balloons, as well as our ties to the Ham Radio Community.
Matt and Phil are working on the Cubesat RF Communications
We are currently hoping to site the Station on the roof of Building 7, with the mast mounted either to the Railings, or to an exterior wall of the small room, and the Electronics located inside the small room.
