The DelfiC3 project is described here and the purpose of this experiment was to see whether a 3 element Yagi for 2 meter is sufficient to catch the signal. With the airspy, and the yagi shown below and sdrshap we found an SNR of approximately 10dB. You need to stay a few meter away from the notebook that records the data to avoid radio frequency interference.
This was the passage on 27-feb-2018 at 9:40 at the campus of the TU Delft. The elevation was approximately 30 degrees, and the ground track was eastwards. Mind that the satellite transmit power is no more than approximately 2 Watt and that the distance to the transmitter is some 2000 km.
PE4WJ added: the TX power is 10dB under the total power consumption, which is 2.4W. So 2.4 Watt minus 10dB = 0.24 Watt, or 23.8 dBm.
