Come Motorola ha contribuito allo sbarco sulla luna 50 anni fa


Le apparecchiature radio Motorola hanno trasmesso le prime parole dalla luna alla terra il 20 luglio 1969
I transponder banda-S a bordo del modulo lunare Apollo 11 e del modulo di comando trasmettono telemetria, comunicazioni vocali, dati biomedici e segnali televisivi tra la terra e la luna. Motorola ha fornito l'antenna appositamente sviluppata per lo zainetto indossato dall'astronauta Neil Armstrong, le apparecchiature per elaborare i segnali TV sulla terra e le apparecchiature responsabili delle funzioni di sicurezza su tutti e tre gli stadi del razzo Saturn V e il tracciamento di precisione durante la fase di lancio.

Motorola è stato uno dei primi fornitori della NASA
Quando il governo degli Stati Uniti ha creato la National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) nel 1958, Motorola, Inc. divenne subito uno dei primi fornitori per le comunicazioni spaziali. Tra i primi contributi dell'azienda ci furono i transponder a bordo del Mariner II, lanciato nel 1962 per esplorare il pianeta Venere.

I transponder fornivano la comunicazione radio tra i veicoli spaziali e la terra, trasmettendo voce, messaggi, segnali video e dati. Queste radio auto-azionate erano essenziali per tracciare la velocità e la posizione del veicolo spaziale e per recuperare i dati e utilizzare gli strumenti elettronici a bordo del veicolo spaziale.
Un obiettivo ambizioso
Negli anni '60, il programma spaziale degli Stati Uniti stabilì l'obiettivo di far sbarcare un uomo sulla luna e riportarlo sano e salvo sulla terra. Il programma coinvolse migliaia di aziende, scienziati e ingegneri statunitensi, tra cui un numeroso team di Motorola.
Motorola fornì i ricevitori per captare i segnali di controllo vitale e di emergenza inviati dalla terra durante il volo spaziale del Progetto Mercury della NASA del 1961 con a bordo l'astronauta Alan Shepard. I due ricevitori Motorola, uno primario e uno di riserva, erano completamente transistorizzati e così compatti che alcune sezioni avevano una densità dei componenti di quasi 90.000 parti radio per piede cubo.
Nel 1966 Surveyor I, un veicolo spaziale senza equipaggio che scattò oltre 11.000 fotografie per mappare la superficie lunare, utilizzò un transponder radio Motorola.
Le missioni Apollo e le prime parole dalla luna
Le apparecchiature Motorola hanno consentito a milioni di persone di guardare e ascoltare il 20 luglio 1969, quando l'astronauta Neil Armstrong mise piede sulla luna - 250.000 miglia (400.000 chilometri) di distanza - e annunciò: "Questo è un piccolo passo per un uomo, un salto gigante per l'umanità ".

Ogni missione Apollo utilizzava apparecchiature e sistemi di comunicazione Motorola dai controlli pre-lancio, all'esplorazione lunare, allo splashdown. Una radio Motorola banda-S nel modulo di comando Apollo forniva all'equipaggio l'unico collegamento di comunicazione con la terra da oltre 30.000 miglia di distanza. L'unità di piccole dimensioni, prodotta dalla Motorola Government Electronics Division, richiedeva meno energia per comunicare con la Terra dalla prossimità della Luna della potenza utilizzata da una normale lampadina da frigorifero dell'epoca.

Nel 1968 la NASA iniziò ad imbarcare astronauti sui voli Apollo che portarono alla missione Apollo 11, che sbarcò il primo uomo sulla luna nel luglio 1969. La missione Apollo 11 fu particolarmente significativa per centinaia di ingegneri Motorola che progettarono, testarono e produssero la sua sofisticata dotazione elettronica.
Motorola fornì migliaia di dispositivi a semiconduttore, apparecchiature di localizzazione e controllo a terra e 12 unità di monitoraggio e comunicazione a bordo. Un "up-data link" nel modulo di comando di Apollo ricevette segnali dalla Terra da inoltrare ad altri sistemi di bordo. Un transponder Motorola ricevette e trasmise segnali vocali e televisivi e dati scientifici.

A bordo del LEM (modulo di escursione lunare) dell'Apollo, un ricetrasmettitore Motorola inviò segnali radio a tre stazioni di ricezione terrestri, dove i demodulatori FM Motorola li convertirono per la trasmissione radiofonica e televisiva. Motorola fornì anche l'antenna appositamente sviluppata per lo zaino indossato da Neil Armstrong.

Qualcuno da Arcetri captò le comunicazioni radio dell' Apollo 11


Con la parabola dell' osservatorio di Arcetri , adattata alla ricezione in banda S , alcuni ricevettero le comunicazioni radio dell' Apollo 11 ( ovviamente non i video ) .

Qui la storia raccontata :

https://www.media.inaf.it/2019/07/16/sbarco-luna-arcetri-20-luglio/

Alcune delle apparecchiature impiegate :


Crediti INAF

Dalla personale analisi tecnica si evidenzia un ricevitore della Microdyne , con demodulazione FM nella banda 105-155 MHz , si tratta con tutta probabilità della IF ( probabilmente a 140 MHz ) di un convertitore messo ,assieme all'illuminatore, all'interno della parabola dell' Osservatorio e con discesa con cavo coassiale.
Probabilmente l'autocostruzione si riferisce a cio' che era dentro la parabola ,  che non compare .

Se qualcuno che era presente durante le ricezioni volesse descriverci quanto ricorda saremmo molto felici e fieri di pubblicare i racconti .

Log Onde lunghe e medie - Valsecca (Bergamo)

Qui di seguito le emittenti ricevute in onde lunghe e medie qui a Valsecca presso il mio domicilio in provincia di Bergamo. Antenna usata Maxiwhip , ricevitore SDR Play SP1, Software SDR Uno.

Altitudine circa 700 metri chiuso in una valle molto stretta.

Invece del solito SINPO ( o SINFO) c'è la misura in dBuV , la soglia di rumore è di 12 dBuV.

Non sono state segnalate le emittenti spagnole in quanto le considero di nessuna importanza visto il "gargantulesco" numero di frequenze in uso e le potenze utilizzate.
Questo è quanto, degno di nota, che sono riuscito a tirar fuori dal marasma iberico.

Hi John

We are not changing frequency.

5055 will run as per usual.

2484 will be an additional transmitter running roughly 6 pm to 6 am.

I was surprised to hear them on the backside of a minor geomagnetic storm, but there they were.

Sorry about the loud, chirping ute the intrudes intermittently.

satellator which has been open carrier for months (altho it got an STA
to be ``off the air``), is now really totally off the air; in fact
first noticed a couple days ago. Thus opens up a good Es FM DX
channel, if the MUF will ever get up there! There are weak marginal
signals from KOSR Stillwater, the local low-power fill-in when major
KOSU 91.7 moved much closer to OKC; and some gospel huxter which I am
concentrating on IDing. It fades way up and down but tropospherically
over unstable hot path, rather than ionospherically. Bible reading is
in progress, finally outro 1910 as Psalms 81-87, to be resumed
tomorrow at 88 (only 10 minutes a day??), on ``Bible Broadcasting
Network``, and into hymnstring. That clinches it as the station I
suspected, next nearest from Wichita KS, KYFW, 17/17 kW, only 43m
height, and with BBN as in WTFDA database.

89.1, Oasis Enid translator is still blocking a much more desirable
Wichitan, KMUW public radio. 92.1, KAMG-LP Enid is still on with dead
air after one day of modulation in May to prove it wasn`t totally
dead. 88.3 free of K202BY also facilitates using 88.3 as RF feeder
frequency for SW radio in the car or even home (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

nearest lightning areas are in NM and off the LA coast. Also have
Okies 255, SW, 25 watts Stillwater, tuned to 253; and even 341, EI, 25

we`re back in season (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

air, then hits WLC IS loop but brief cutoff at 0344:42. Must be having
problems rather than apocalypting at this hourpart. By 0600 recheck
only a JBA carrier, propagation dropout? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, July 14 at 0459 UT, quick check immediately finds
mention of Traverse City, as WJNL 50 kW daytimer continues cheating
since at least June 24. QRM from more than one station KGYN, maybe
WPHT and/or KUBR; predominant SAH count now is 138/minute = 2.3 Hz
rather than 3+ Hz with KGYN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
