Gilberstoun Satellite Tracking Station
Established in October 1981 to track and download telemetry from UoSAT-1 using an ASTRID receiver by Steve Webb and a Dragon 32 computer. Almost 40 years later the system is still working! Just taken delivery of a quadrafilar antenna from Japan to replace my faulty crossed dipoles. Better pictures soon!
