Are you fascinated by space and want to learn how to receive data from satellites and weather probes? In this TinyGS station workshop, you’ll build and program your ground station and antenna to receive data from space. This hands-on, beginner-friendly workshop is perfect for anyone interested in radio, electronics, IOT, antenna design, and space exploration. TinyGS is an open community-run network of ground stations distributed around the world to receive and operate LoRa satellites, weather probes, and other flying objects, using cheap and versatile modules. With a TinyGS ground station, you can receive data from a variety of sources, such as CubeSats.

During the workshop, you’ll learn how to build and program a TinyGS ground station and a quarter-wave ground plane antenna. No prior experience is required.
