Zeke tracks OreSat & optimizes LNA impedance matching

OreSat is a cubesat designed and built by Portland State University students. As previously reported, OreSat is now in orbit. The upcoming OreSat Ground Station is a project to track and communicate with the cubesat from the ground using an inexpensive and easily assembled kit. However, one intrepid explorer wasn’t willing to wait. Meet Zeke (a.k.a. KJ7NLL), creator of this satellite tracker made of LEGOs:

Here’s another video in which Zeke steps us through how to optimize impedance matching for the Qorvo QPL9547 ultra-low noise LNA:

Be sure to check out some of Zeke’s other RF design videos on the KJ7NLL YouTube channel.

CaribouLite is shipping… and being given away!

CaribouLite RPi HAT is an SDR in the form factor of a Raspberry Pi HAT. The first production batch has already started shipping and they will soon be in stock. Better yet, we’re giving away ten (10) units over the course of the next month, at least half of which will be given to randomly chosen unique subscribers to the Qorvo RF Acclerator. If you’re not already subscribed, you can do so below. Limit one subscription per individual.

Meet Ukama

The latest addition to the Qorvo RF Accelerator is Ukama, an all-in-one solution for running an indoor or outdoor cellular data basestation in the CBRS band. Ukama packs a punch whether you want to start your own cellular data provider or extend your IoT network a few kilometers.
