QO-100: Some Problems To Solve. And A Gift From My Wife


In this video series, we are building a ground station for a geostationary satellite and try to talk to a guy in Antarctica. It is a bonus series and not directly related to the regular topics of the channel.
The last two weeks were rainy and wet here in Switzerland. I have the antenna outside, and I did not want to go there with my delicate equipment. That is why I still was not able to transmit a signal and receiving my voice from space. But I was not lazy!
And I got a gift from my wife...

I am a proud Patreon of GreatScott!, Electroboom, Electronoobs, EEVblog, and others.
