OK Henk, you sold me the idea.
I see there is a pass at 1650 and 1850 ish this evening in Europe. I'll
give it a try and perhaps get that rare QSL from NASA.

As can be seen in this HD Video it only takes a FUNcubeDongle
plus a 12 elements beam to hear & decode Nanosail-D2 !
Adding the control software of Mike & Mike, plus WRplus and MixW
you have a ground station that can support small satellite missions.
