ORBITING OBJECT & SATELLITE WATCHING

USING A MOST UNIQUE MONITORING METHOD

RADIO FREQUENCY REFLECTION FROM THE SPACE FENCE

AND

RADIO TELEMETRY BEACON RECEPTION

 

As seen on TV and in print publications. Mike Coletta KG0UFO & KPC0UFO

Featured on Discovery Channel in 2012 & 2013, on European Discovery Channel in 2013, and on the Military Channel in 2013.  Also featured cover story, Feb 2013 Popular Communications  Magazine.

 

Detecting orbiting objects such as satellites, rocket boosters, meteors, and UFO - even when you can't see them using a telescope, binoculars, a camera, or your naked eye!

ORBITING OBJECT TRACKING ... It's the thrill of the chase.

Promoting and supporting the hobby of amateur radio, Mike - KG0UFO, along with many other radio hobbyists around the globe use the reflected signals of the AF Space Fence to detect orbiting objects as they make their way over the US.

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE

The Space Fence transmitter has been turned off.

LISTEN: AUDIO REPORT (mp3 file)

The signal was lost at approx 0000 Hrs UTC 1 Sep 2013 which coincides

with the date an AF memo mentioned for a final operations timeframe.

Below are the final three RF Reflection captures I received from the Space Fence

prior to the signal being turned off.  (Click photos to enlarge)

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: Thanks to Alberto, I2PHD for his freeware software (SPECTRAN & ARGO). These products 'hear' signals that I can not always hear and provide me some cool Weak Signal captures!

 

A very interesting capture just days before the space fence was turned off...
