Some time ago I decided I wanted to incorporate the Outernet receiver into my portable classroom project and I was able to do so with the KU band portable folding dish. Since that system was shut down I ordered the patch antenna and I’m really happy to report it is working great here in SW Ontario. I’m able to get up over 8 SNR at times no problem when the conditions are great.
In case anyone else is interested in making their own portable classroom/communication/disaster relief system- I’ve posted all the design, code and instructions free and open source here: https://hackaday.io/project/11010-educase-portable-classroom The Outernet receiver is a nice little addition to the system and now with the L band transmissions- its much more portable.
Thanks for all the work Outernet team! Cheers
