Deep Space Communication

Ever wondered how we get data back from satellites and probes in deep space? Well, the members of the Hilderstone Radio Society were given talk by Matt, M0LMK, on the subject as our first talk of the new club year.

The talk was very well attended and it was great to learn about the history of the Deep Space Network, methods and modes of communication, how long it takes to get a message to the Voyager 1 spacecraft and what NASA are experimenting with for the next generation of space communication.
