My 16 1/2" old Cave Telescope Home-made Observatory CCD Cooled ATIKs and Antenna System

NEW ORLEANS Receiver located at the foot of Lake Pontchartrain not far from downtown and the Mississippi River, close to the U.S. Coast Guard Station. we realize this might not be the ideal location for any high quality HF reception. - too close to the noisy downtown! this, however, could give us a true reflection of what to expect from this part of town, an area often full of surprises.

- This work can be challenging but its also a lot of fun. Operated by Roberto Dabdoub, KB5AVY, Trustee of "kb5avy Linked repeater system" with over 35 years of service.

Using a couple Nooelec Dongles with converters, a few Softrocks and Funcubes Pro plus dongles. An Intel i7 Skywave Linux and two Rasberry Ps are running this game. Two G5RVs, one Magnetc loop Facing South/East and a rotable dipole facing a family of squirrels in an oak tree. An Optoelectronics notch filter. We're elated that Dr.Tjerk de Boer allowed us to partake in his unique project.

Owing to the limited bands access on this server. More specifically, the lack of room to expand our Softrocks with their respective soundcards. We've introduced several Kiwi-SDRs that are now available via antennas 3, 4 and 5

#3 is a passive YouLoop at 50 feet high pointing East. #4 is a G5RV pointed North/South. Our FunCube Dongle Pro+ on a vertical and it is accesible through the KB5AVY RCForb Remote Hams. It covers 150 kHz to 1.9 GHz

This WebSDR is now accessible from the free Pocket, RxTx App for Android. THNX to Dan Toma, YO3GGX
