Hi, i was just wondering if there is anything which will allow me to watch stuff over the internet live like a webcam but maybe satellite or somthing. So i can see my friend in england (with out them having to by a webcam)? and for other uses. ? So basicaly updates live and is not just pictures of the place im looking at.

-Thanks

You could try and get into a commercial satellite system or better government owned spy satellites. I wish you luck with this venture and I will be happy to point you in the right direction. The needed equipment will set you back a bit.

I'm gonna say this isn't going to happen.

You need some fairly powerful microwave equipment if we are taking about communicating with most satellites but there are open satellites that amateur radio operators can play around with (none of which can take photos).

No AMPRNet satellites?

I’m not sure, I never got to heavily into the amateur side of things. I only worked with commercial systems and all the equipment we used was expensive, although I am aware of a large amateur interest in the whole area and some manufactures have produced lower cost equipment targeted at them, so they may have something out there.

He's asking about watching a live stream of his friend from a satellite on the Internet though.

True, but he still has the option of trying to get into a company /government network and using their equipment that way (which is harder).

I don’t really see him getting anywhere with this idea or any idea that I have mentioned.

Thats where AMPRNet comes in, since its packet based and there are gateways that route over the internet. Theoretically if there was a camera on a amateur satilite which you could access via AMPRNet you might be able to get pictures from it to you home computer. However its very unlikely.

they have cams in cities all over the world. You can view them from your browser. Is that what your looking for?

Apparently it isn't, because remember, he wants to be able to see pictures/video of people with out using a camera of any sort. Seems a bit like an impossible request to me.

I didnt say with out using a camera of any sort .... i meant not a webcam on there pc.

You're going to have to use an image capture device of some kind. You're not going to get to use those cool aerial photography photos the government uses -- those are intelligence agencies only.

You basically have to go with a camera you buy if you want any kind of feeds online. A good choice is either the Linksys monstrocity or or those Panasonic webcameras that can give you multiple feeds on one webpage.

Good luck with finding the right solution for you! :)
