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.

A very interesting capture just days before the space fence was turned off...
RF reflection from a huge Fireball over Texas / New Mexico

Moon passing over Space Fence
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.
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.
