I just noticed today that recently the Outernet satellite information
service just switched from K-band to L-band.
This allows for a much smaller patch antenna to receive the signal from
Inmarsat, but at a lower bit rate (20 MB/day).
This is a free service, and can be received with low-cost hardware:
Raspberry Pi 3, RTL-SDR, LNA, and patch antenna. All available from
Apparently APRS is being rebroadcast, as well as weather satellite
