My name is Alex, full name Alexandru Csete, or OZ9AEC on the air.
Since 2011 I have been a development engineer at Thrane & Thrane (now Cobham Satcom) where I work with control systems and embedded software for stabilized Ku/Ka VSAT antennas. I’m proud to be on the team that brought the worlds best SAILOR and Explorer VSAT antennas to the market.
In addition to the above I am also:
- Enjoying ham radio since 1991 as OZ9AEC
- Author of several popular open source software projects like Gqrx SDR and Gpredict
- Contributing to other open source projects like GNU Radio, SatNOGS and Hamlib
- Promoting open technologies like FreeDV
- Member of Copenhagen Suborbitals working primarily on the telemetry and the video downlink systems
- Teaching and giving talks about various topics in hamradio, open source, space and software defined radios
I am available for consulting and freelance work within space, satcom and SDR. Contact me at if you are interested. Please, only work related emails here. Everything else will be ignored!
I still use my hamradio email address but in most cases I ignore tech support type emails from strangers. I have a full time job, family & friends, and I already spend a lot of time on making free software for others. All of my software has public support forums and communities and you should use those instead of emailing me directly.
