It’s not exactly every day that you get the chance to work with any data, let alone telemetry data from a 50-year-old satellite. However, thanks to Scott’s observations of LES-5 and subsequent investigation into its telemetry beacon, the opportunity arose. Based partly on the work of others, as well as what I’ve managed to glean from the technical documentation that has been gathered, I’d like to explain my process for processing data from LES-5.
