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) working 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 hamradio 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, space and software defined radios
I am occasionally available for consulting and freelance work within space, satcom and SDR. You can contact me at if you are interested.
For hamradio related matters you can use but please understand that I am not a help desk and I do not provide random technical support over email.
