This page will show the status and locations of the ground station network. At this time, this page is not connected to live status data but we hope to fix this soon.

This map is displayed using Google Maps or can be used to launch Google Earth. To view all the ground stations in Google Earth (which you can download for free from, click on ‘View larger map’ and then on ‘View in Google Earth’ at the top right of the window. Google Maps sometimes has problems with circles near the poles, so please ignore any horizontal lines you might see.

Active ground stations are marked with a pin and the approximate area of coverage they provide for a 700km LEO myPocketQub is marked in green. Locations that have offered to host a ground station but have not installed hardware yet are marked in yellow. Locations where we would like to have at least one ground station installed to ensure minimal coverage are marked in red. Please note that some locations have had a random error of up to +/- 50km applied to them to protect their privacy.

We wish to over build the network so we can do lots of interesting research so if you could host a ground station anywhere on earth, please visit our new sites page – thanks!

System administrators can log into the status system here.


Do you have a story, information, brochure, manual, link or other relevant content that should be on this page? If so, we would be very grateful if you would leave it as a comment or email so we can post it here – thanks
