To receive signals from our first satellite, HackSat One, we need to build a ground station and mission control. Hackney Space Centre is based at London Hackspace (51.53ºN, 0.06ºW).

Due to delays in getting the radio mast ready the space centre plan has been put on hold. It may be revived at a later date if there are further space missions.

If you're interested in trying to receive the signal from HackSat (and the other KickSat sprites) yourself see setting up a ground station.
