Help us welcome Discovery Dish, check out Qorvo RF Accelerator projects at GRCon 2023, and watch a progress report from Zeke (a.k.a. KJ7NLL).
Help us welcome Discovery Dish to the Qorvo RF Accelerator. Discovery Dish is a simplified system for weather satellite reception and hydrogen line radio astronomy. To amplify the weak signals transmitted by weather satellites, Discovery Dish incorporates the Qorvo QPL9547 high-linearity, ultra-low-noise amplifier in a small 2 x 2 mm surface-mount package.
GNU Radio Conference (GRCon) is the annual conference for the GNU Radio project and community, and has established itself as one of the premier industry events for software-defined radio. The week-long conference took place September 5-9, featuring high-quality technical content and valuable networking opportunities.
Accelerator projects VXSDR-20-160 and uSDR both attended in GRCon in person. VXSDR-20-160, a high-performance 5-20 GHz software-defined radio, gave a lightning talk, and uSDR, a tiny, single-sided M.2 SDR board, gave an overview of their platform.
