We need an accurate time to be able to georeference your satellite image. Check the WAV filename to see if the time is recorded in it. Please use the 24-hour time format HH:MM:SS. For example, 15:01:26

We ask you to also enter the date in UTC to reduce errors. For some time zones, the local date may be different from the date in UTC. Since the difference between local and UTC time changes throughout the year, be sure to check the UTC time and date using thetimezoneconverter.com

For example, how was your experience of the weather while receiving the image? What do you see in your image? Where do you locate the climate crisis in your local community or environment?

Only one channel is used, so a mono WAV file is ideal.
It will be automically resampled to 12480 Hz.

For example, a photo of you, your DIY satellite ground station, the weather or your local environment. A maximum of 5 files no larger than 10 MB each can be uploaded.
