This is a 10GHz Beacon Monitoring WebSDR receiverlocated at Mow Cop on the Stoke on Trent / Cheshire border SJ 859 575
Currently it is monitoring 192KHz of the amateur 10GHz beacon band. The centre frequency is 10 368.855 MHz, and should be accurate to a couple of hundred Hz.
The receiver is an Omni directional waveguide antenna feeding an LNB into a 'Bernie Box' downconverter, into a modified 'Finningley' SDR running at 18MHz
More information on the receiver can be found Here and some pictures of the view from the top of the mast can be found Here
The PC hardware is a Dell Optiplex 780 with 4Gb RAM and an Asus Xonar D1 sound card for the IQ input from the downconverter. OS is Debian 8 (Jessie).
