Sorry about the vague title, but i don´t really know how best to describe this, I live in a small spainish village, where the street lights go off every night at 1am to save power. After 1am its very dark and you have a totally clear view of the night sky, you can see the milky way, but most interestingly, you can see satellites. I dont mean stuff like astra, but satellites moving over your head. Anyway, i was wondering how the signal is transmitted to earth and weather it would be possible with a satellite dish to recieve the signal.

Thanks

Most of them use probably use something like omnidirectional vhf transmissions rather than the directional stuff that requires dishes.

You can identify loads of the passes using h**p://www.heavens-above.com
