As part my PhD, I used GPS satellites to measure the beam pattern of a telescope I built. While this can be done easily with the pyEphem module, I found that there wasn’t much documentation out there on the interwebs. So, I’ve written a simple Python script (below) which takes you through the basics of using pyEphem to track the path of GPS satellites. Firstly, you’ll be needing a list of GPS satellites. This can be downloaded from: This is in the form of…Continue Reading “GPS sattelite tracking in Python using pyEphem”
