Manufacturing Progress

It's been over a month since our last update so we thought we'd share some of the recent progress. As mentioned in our last update, during the month of February all manufacturing was shut down due to the Chinese New Year holiday. In early March, staff returned to the factories and began making progress on finishing Discovery Dish. Read the full update.

Design Improvements, Satellite Updates, and Q&A

Welcome to our first update in 2024 for Discovery Dish. We hope everyone has had a great holiday season! Things are moving slowly but steadily towards the final product. Due to the looming Chinese New Year holidays, we don't expect much to be done before February in terms of production, but from March onwards we expect to see rapid progress. In the mean time while we wait for the factories to come back online, we are tweaking the prototypes, making a few improvements, and continually testing. Read the full update.

Our Campaign is Now Live!

Welcome to everyone interested in Discovery Dish! We decided to develop Discovery Dish because we were disappointed by the lack of ready-to-use, low-cost, lightweight dish antennas on the market that are suitable for software-defined radio projects like receiving L-Band geostationary and polar-orbiting weather satellites, as well as for 1.5 GHz Inmarsat reception and 1.42 GHz hydrogen line radio astronomy.
