Anyone done any Outernet reception yet? looks easy enough with SDR and a home made ant.

you only need a L-band 8DBi patch antenna apparently a small pre-amp and an sdr receiver.

Our signal is broadcast over three Inmarsat satellites, offering coverage on continents and on the open seas. These three birds are:

I-4 F1 APAC (Asia-Pacific), at 144-degrees East
Alphasat, at 25-degrees East
I-4 F3 Americas, at 98-degrees West

Our frequencies are:

APAC: 1545.9525 MHz
Alphasat: 1545.94 MHz
Americas: 1539.8725 MHz

Bitrate is about 2kbps, or 20MB of content per day. <<<<<<<<20MBYTE PER DAY!

Outernet L-Band hardware can also be used for Inmarsat reception, including SafetyNET, EGC, and AERO.


First Ive heard of L-Band being used.

$99 for hardware kit. not sure of the cost to use the system though


File sharing by Satellite eh? Hmmm Could be fun?
Hackable??? :twisted:
