    Great video by young ham on how to receive xmissions from those cubesats.

    Chasing Cubesats on a $25 Budget with an RTL-SDR and Homemade Antenna - rtl-sdr.com

    Listened to one the other day, not on a dongle but on a 2m radio and discone, interesting to hear hams contacting each other while satellite is passing. Just like a crossband repeater but way up in the sky.

    A ham buddy of mine picked up these sats using a J pole on a tripod at ground level.
