GRAPT Overview



This experiment is trivial, nonetheless it validates the RF-part of the setup. It will also reveal whether additional hardware like LNA is required.


Frequencies

Currently, following NOAA satellites are active on 137 MHz APT and 1.7 GHz HRPT:

SAT APT Freq HRPT Freq Notes
NOAA-15 137.5000 MHz 1702.5 MHz VTX-1 / STX-2 / MSB / OMNI=RCP
NOAA-16 OFF 1702.5 MHz n/a / STX-2 / MSB / LCP
NOAA-17 137.6200 MHz 1698.0 MHz VTX-2 / STX-1 / LSB / RCP
NOAA-18 137.1000 MHz 1707.0 MHz VTX-1 / STX-3 / HSB / RCP
NOAA-19 137.9125 MHz 1698.0 MHz VTX-2 / STX-1 / LSB / RCP
