Congratulations !

Really amazing techniques :-O

Add accurate tracking of a (small) dish, and accurate doppler compensation and 
you will be able to
detect the Voyager1 in 8.4GHz ;-)

Hi Joe!
compliments for the amazing result!
It is really amazing what you are doing on both side of the pond!

Thank-you Paul.  Your RX setup and processing are fantastic.
2.6 electrons on an e probe -  that delights me!

EbNaut and 100 uW are the next goals.
