Thanks for your interest on building a satellite ground station! First things first you need to understand all the different components of a ground station. Head over to # to read more about ground stations. Once you familiarized yourself with all the components you need to make a selection on what you are going to be building (and/or buying). Below you can find a table outlining all the different options.


A satellite ground station is made up from different parts. The following diagram can help you select your setup based on your needs and/or your existing setup.

Network Software Controller Rotator Radio Antenna
SatNOGS Network SatNOGS Client SatNOGS Controller SatNOGS Rotator SDR Yagi
Other Software Rot2Prog SPID Big RAS Transceiver Helical
lsf-g5500 Yaesu G5500 Vertical
No rotator Cross-Yagi
Use the above table to select your setup. E.g. SatNOGS Network > SatNOGS Client > RaspberryPi > Yaesu G550 > Kenwood TS2000 > UHF helical & VHF Cross Yagi

Next steps

Once you have a ground station ready, you should go ahead and operate it! More info can be found on Operation wiki page.
