Following the completion of murmur, I was intrigued to learn of a Fife-based Amateur Radio Society that meets in order to send and receive microwave transmissions. John, a member of the society, very kindly sent me an audio recording of FUNcube satellite sending and receiving data while passing overhead. In the recording the satellite’s synchronising tone lowers in pitch as it moves further away. Till now I hadn’t realised that distance could have such a pure tonal quality.
In return I sent John a copy of murmur. These images are his response:
