Mars Perseverance probe Orbiter radio Beacon


On February 18, 2021 I used my SDR# (Software Defined Radio) software to pick up the Perseverance orbiter radio beacon signal when the Perseverance lander was landing on Mars. As a HAM radio operator, I have do have some experience in SDR, as I usually use it to pick up and record NOAA weather satellite signals, decode them, and then generate weather images. Here is the signal as recorded live. http://tek1systems.com/vid/MarsPerseveranceOrbiter/VID20210218_132426.mp4
