It’s been the coldest August in 25 years in Germany. Plenty of dreary grey clouds, intermittent showers, and dampness. Which, of course, makes it pretty difficult to get satellite signals, what with all that cloud and rain in the way.

We’ve had a couple of very exciting moments, in just the last week or so, of suddenly finding the signal of the satellite. Below are a couple of excerpts from the signal of the LES-1, derived from I/Q data, which we’ve uploaded to SoundCloud.
