AMSAT tinkerers?

OUTERNET is a free worldwide Geostationary Satellite downlink system
designed to bring content to remote areas all over the globe.  They have
six geostationary birds covering the entire globe EVERYWHERE.  All you need
is a small 18” (or 36” in some very remote areas) to receive content via
your own home-made receiver based on a TV dongle and Rasberry Pi.

Is there anyone on AMSAT-bb that is already receiving this content?  We’d
like to hear about how easy it is to set up a receiver.

We have some ideas on how this can be used to augment Ham radio in our
Emergency Response and remote operations missions.  See
