    25 more years ago, A friend of mine worked there in Caversham near Reading UK. I visited him there and he let me into his listening post, I think they used a Racal with remote antennas. Because he let me into the “stuff only area” his boss asked him no to do so again. I think he worked there for 5-7 years, he got the job because he was a Ham. A dream job isn’t it Thomas?

      Yes adi I can remember reading a detailed article about Caversham “back in the day” and seeing photos with workstations with Racal receivers. I also remember being fascinated that the antennas were remote, some miles away. I dreamed of such a setup for me.

      Today with the KiwiSDR network of receivers I have realized the dream of long ago. I can tune to over 200 antennas scattered around the globe!

      The BBC Monitoring magazine feature on their satellite dish farm looks a bit like my backyard in Australia! With 8 dishes in my home in Eastern Australia and 2 at my place in Indonesia I have full coverage of the television from most countries in Asia. (I like watching local news, local drama, music and advertisements – you get a great sense of what each country is like).

      More and more for me digital IP reception is replacing RF, and the massive amount of content I can receive was certainly unimaginable even a few years ago. Its a great time to be alive!!! 🙂
