The satellite I am looking is not there.

  • Not all satellites are in SatNOGS DB yet. We prioritized the most common ones that we have transmitter information for. We need your help to expand our database!
  • Go to our Community Forum and open a new thread requesting a satellite addition, with additional info (links and citations) about it.
  • A DB reviewer will answer promptly and add the satellite to the DB so you can suggest transmitter information.
