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

Promoting and supporting the hobby of amateur radio, Mike - KM0MMM, along with many other radio hobbyists around the globe used the reflected signals of the AF Space Fence to detect orbiting objects as they make their way over the US.

NOTE: While the space fence was still active I was able to detect and catalog over 150 objects that passed through its 800 Kilowatt 8 degree RF beam. That data, in its entirety is no longer on this website.

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.

For more recent captures, I've switched to using a USB SDR Dongle

for satellite frequency reception. Because of this I also

changed the way I am displaying my captures.

 

I now use Twitter to display any captures.
