Bochum delivers space data again…August 31, 2021
Our eyes and ears are finally back on Mars and Stereo-A.
In June this year (2021) the antenna control of the 20-meter antenna at the observatory Bochum was damaged by a heavy lightning strike and had to be repaired. The system was successfully recommissioned at the end of August, including a new fine calibration.
The successful repair is also due to the team of volunteers of AMSAT-DL and Observatory Bochum. Especially mentioned are Mario DL5MLO, James G3RUH, Thilo DJ5YM, Jens DH6BB, Ralf Höhinghaus and Peter DB2OS.
