SatNOGS update

Santa’s elves left almost all of the remaining parts in the post box so the build is starting nicely. The photo below shows the progress and it is quite clear that there’s still a bit of a way to go but the main work is done. For the mechanical parts at least.

SatNOGS progressNext steps are to attempt to make up the belts and do the same for the azimuth section.

After that then its done to the electronics parts which are now based on a raspberry pi and ‘should’ be more straightforward and are less likely to end up with a bricked WP-LINK device!

All things told we’re on track to show off the finished article at the NARSA Rally at Norbreck on the 10th April. Perhaps there’s a section for 3D prnted parts in the construction competition
