Recommended CubeSat Transceiver Modules


I’m new to the maker forum and I’m looking to build a communication subsystem for a CubeSat and I’m looking for a transceiver module with decent power output possibly above 15dBm and equal to or less than 30dBm. What products do you recommend?

Any advice and tips are appreciated deeply :smile:

Hi Charith!

This sounds like an awesome project. I’m not sure we’re going to have a high enough gain antenna, but you might be able to make one yourself with a bit of research and careful tinkering. I don’t have a whole lot of experience in the RF world, but there are definitely a few Amateur radio enthusiasts floating around.

I’ve done a bit of googling and have found a couple of really great papers written as theses:

Especially look at the list of final recommendations in the CommSurvey.

You might also like to get an SDR and explore the radio waves in your area.
