    It really works great TOM. I can now leave the Minitiouner with a simple raspberry close to my dish and control the DATV RX via network all over my house.

    Combined with the remote monitoring via the same raspberry i can switch everything on and monitor temperature, voltage and power...


    Great tool with less cpu load.

    Using Toms ZR6TG client and a raspberry 2 or better will make a nice networked Minitiouner RX..


    So minitiouner connected to a raspberry 2b (or better).

    Load a longmynd server onto the raspberry.

    Install a windows client and use multicast to view the video all over the network.


    Use multiple raspberries with multiple MT and your close to a winterhill (witch is even better).

    Hi Gerard, I got this same pallet.

    Put it on a big heat sink and gathering info.

    I first will check the i2c setting and see if we can controll the 4 bias controllers.

    Next I will slowly start to connect the power and see what it will do. Unfortunately I am a bit occupied whit a bunch of other projects so you may beat me setting it on 2400.


    Looking forward to compair the notes.


    Benno, pa3fbx.


    I was under de impression the pallet was made for 2100 MHz and not 2600mhz.

    Tip: (with the help of martin...:))

    goto putty into the raspberry


    git clone https://github.com/dj0abr/QO-1…bSDR_DATV-WebSpectrum.git

    cd QO-100_SSB-WebSDR_DATV-WebSpectrum

    ./prepare_ubuntu_pluto

    ./build_RTLSDR

    sudo ./qo100websdr


    And than it should work...


    one question. I need to connect my pluto via USB to the ryde.

    If so, i cannot use the pluto for TX any more..

    Why not use the pluto via network..

    I succesfully used 1 pluto for DATV-TX and sdrconsole for RX via the network...


    So if the WB would use the pluto via network i may be able to use the TX. but we probably would get problems with 8 Mhz wide view..


    Looking forward to the next update...


    Thanks ..

    Benno


    Well there you have it..

    after you wget or gitclone...


    I need more help with that..

    i know how to download it onto widows but the right command to get it directly to the ryde rasp... is a dark mistery..


    There is no easy wget installllll.sh......

    Hi martin,


    I get

    Not Found

    The requested URL was not found on this server.

    Apache/2.4.38 (Raspbian) Server at 192.168.1.28 Port 80


    But thats not a supprice as i cannot start the server to config it at all...


    -bash: ./prepare_ubuntu_pluto: does not exsist...


    If i look in the script i can run the induvidual commands ..


    It seems i need a wget to get its out of the github into my running ryde..

    But there is the lacking knolledge..



    Benno

    I am a bit lost...

    Have ryde over one year and found this addition..

    I know my ways to my raspb... but have no qlue how i should install this..


    I have entered the command lines in the mentions file into my putty and although its doing a lot there is no webserver yet..

    I copied the github data into my rasp. but cannot start the scripts there...


    So little help for the starters would be appriciated..

    hi Roberto..


    Thanks for your fast reply.

    I use the pluto not via lan adapter but via USB..

    I've 2 pluto's boxxed in together with USB splitter and sufficient power.

    So i really do not want to go to Lan option as of now.


    As many other use USB connected pluto's i'd really like to find the solution of getting it working via the PC router option..


    Like to have more pointers if you have any.


    Thanks in advance...

    Will play on and reporting results in the other thred.


    Thanks for now2...

    Hi Adrian...


    If we only understand....


    I am also struggeling but found in the help..."The Pluto must be connected on the same local network,"


    if you, like me, connected the pluto to USB port the pluto works in different network e.g. 192.168.2.x.

    I have not find the workaround...

    check so far the netmask in the pluto and corrected to 255.255.0.0

    but its not in the pocket yet..

    Need to be smarter...

    Hello Christian,


    Finally today installed the new 21-10 version..

    found your great and long awaited improvements but its not working..

    I have minitiouner express running on same windows 10 PC.

    QO-100 WB live tune works fine..

    have the port en 232.0.0.11 default working..


    Did setup the 2110 witch is straight forward..

    see the message "receive channel change request completed"..

    But nothing happens in minitioune V0.0_9.1h


    what am i doing wrong?


    Best regards

    Gentleman.. the Amsat Organisation is clear.. they Will Not allow Any FM in qo100

    This was the basic question. All Others solutions are Working, has been used OR Not the andere..


    I am able to send 2 seperat Signals an able to receive 2 seperat Signals..

    NB USB is currently the only Working solution and the rest is not practical...


    Thanks for your thoughts..

    Did some testing on both ideas...

    Recently i am able to be QRV on NB and WB in same disc and amplifier..


    Doing NB USB is a good option but indeed far from perfect. zerobeat signals and squelch problems makes it less preferable for the DATV station.

    NFM or even WFM will fit easy between WB channels and is better in respect of quality and easy to use.. You can better work with squelch options and even CTCSS.. Downside, youll need over 10Watt FM to get a desent S9 R5 signal...

    In stead of the 4 watt needed for a similar USB signal...


    You can even put the NFM channel inside the DATV signal but youll get lots of white noise in the reception and the D quality of the DATV signal goes down rapidly...

    So that not wat one should want...


    Normal 2 way QSO on DATV is still not so easy as there is a big delay in coding and decoding causing up to 15 sec waitings in microfoon hand overs....


    So what would be the reason not to use NFM in the WB section of this nice project other than it needs to be allowed??

    @markro92 Great Software, But it seems DVBS1 is not working anymore..


    Tested on 3 different locations with different computers and setup's

    Tested on 144.600, 436 Mhz and 1255mhz.


    Use RTL stick as receiver.

    DVBS2 works simple and perfect.

    250 KS up to 2Ms..


    But switching to DVBS1 i get the constalation perfect but no sync..

    not even more than 1.


    I use 500KS FEC 2/3 DVBS1 H264... for testing...


    Can you confirm that DVBS1 should work?


    Best regards...

    Benno




    What would be the max DC input for the UMTS siemens/nokia amplifier.

    Currently running on 28V and i know 32 Volt is mentioned but the max ratings of the LDmos are much higher.

    I have a 400 watt 35Volt DC supply and i just wonder if the gain and more important the efficiency would benefit from a higher DC input.

    Or will i just smoke some parts...
