This is a WebSDR receiver, located in Dresden, JO61VA51
It is operated by Norbert, DL4DTU and Mario, DH5YM, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
It receives the narrow band section of the 10GHz amateur radio band from 10368 to about 10369 MHz. The antenna is heading in north direction and does not have much gain but a relative large reception angle. Polarization is horizontal.
At the upper end of the spectrum around 10368.9 you can find the local 10GHz beacon DM0TUD transmitting in CW-FSK (nominal 10368.885MHz).
The equipment used is a Octagon OTLSO Sat LNB with crystal stabilization and a RTLSDR sampling the IF of about 618.5MHz. Please excuse some frequency drift since the LNB is located outside. If you are not sure about the exact frequency please calculate the difference of the displayed frequency of DM0TUD from .885 and calculate your real frequency with this delta value.
To check if clouds for scattering are available you can check out the RS map of Patrick, TK5EP. You can find it here: http://www.egloff.eu/rsmap/rsmap.php
Many thanks for providing this useful tool !

The aim of the WebSDR is to support the activities within the DUR "Dresdner UKW Runde". This is the name for the VHF/UHF/SHF activities in and around Dresden that were started in the year 1962. You can find some more information in german language here http://dl0tud.tu-dresden.de/html/DUR.html.
Since 2008 there is a regular activity every third sunday of a month were the bands from 23cm upwards are activated. This activity is in parallel to the OK/OM activity. You can find the page about the DUR activity contest here: http://dl0tud.tu-dresden.de/wordpress/?page_id=282.
Norbert has brought the PC back to life. The WebSDR works again now.
Now there is a antenna connected to the 23cm path. Its a bi-quad with reflector also heading towards north-west direction as the 3cm path. Currently the antenna LNA is missing. Therefore you might just be able to receive the local beacon DB0TUD. We will inform you once t
he LNA is in operation.
WebSDR repaired. The Octagon LNB failed after 1.5years. Most probably the PLL is not working anymore. We mounted a new LNB. Next weeks we also plan to add 23cm.
The band is already enabled and a rtlsdr is connected but no antenna is connected at the moment. We will inform you when the setup is ready for tests. The antenna will be a double-quad most probably also in north-western direction.
