Ham Radio and Juno

Since I’m featuring amateur radio this weekend, let’s recycle this bit of Internet Astronomy:

Saying, “Hi,” to Juno

During its recent flyby of Earth, the Jupiter-bound Juno spacecraft listened for a communication from amateur radio operators transmitting from locations around the world. This video depicts the results.

BTW, HI HI (di-di-di-dit/di-dit  di-di-di-dit/di-dit) is Morse code slang for laughter.

  1. De do do do de da da da is Police slang for “All I want to say to you…” Thanks for the informational posts. Hope the ham activities are going well.
