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. Read on to learn more about ground stations. Once you have 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.
