Monthly Meeting July – Radiosonde auto-rx

1 July @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Michaela VK3FUR will be giving a presentation about the Sondehub balloon tracker database. She is one of the main developers and maintainers of the project along with Mark VK5QI. Sondehub aggregates telemetry data from community run radiosonde receiver stations. Radiosonde weather balloons are launched from numerous weather organisations around the world, with the data used to build weather models. Using a low cost software-defined radio, a Raspberry Pi, and all open-source software, it is possible to decode signals from these devices. You can then track their flight path, collect the weather data they transmit, and even recover and repurpose them!
This talk will cover the development and worldwide use of the SondeHub project, and how we have been expanding the project to also support amateur radio high-altitude balloon flights.
