This is a 10GHz Beacon Monitoring WebSDR receiver

located at Mow Cop on the Stoke on Trent / Cheshire border SJ 859 575 

Currently it is monitoring 192KHz of the amateur 10GHz beacon band. The centre frequency is 10 368.855 MHz, and should be accurate to a couple of hundred Hz.

The receiver is an Omni directional waveguide antenna feeding an LNB into a 'Bernie Box' downconverter, into a modified 'Finningley' SDR running at 18MHz

More information on the receiver can be found Here and some pictures of the view from the top of the mast can be found Here

The PC hardware is a Dell Optiplex 780 with 4Gb RAM and an Asus Xonar D1 sound card for the IQ input from the downconverter. OS is Debian 8 (Jessie).

More information about the WebSDR project can be found on  Thanks to Bernie G4HJW and David G6GXK for the Hardware, and Garry G6LJC for access to a fantastic site.

Also made possible with thanks to the extraordinarily reliable and fast business class internet access provided by Internet Central
