AbstractTo support collection of telemetry from its orbital spacecraft, the Passive Inspection Cubesats (PICs) launched in Jan. 2021, Brigham Young University (BYU) built a custom satellite ground station to track and communicate with the two PICs. We are upgrading our satellite ground station to work with SatNOGS. The BYU SatNOGS Ground Station is a student-built ground station for receiving communications from small satellites in low earth orbit. The ground station was designed to be integrated into the SatNOGS network, a Libre Space project. SatNOGS is an open source network of satellite ground stations established around the globe as a collaborative, buy-in network. The BYU Ground Station is provided as the University’s buy-in, allowing future projects to take full advantage of the SatNOGS network. BYU’s addition to the network is an omnidirectional parasitic Lindenblad antenna designed for the 70 cm band.
