    I used a lens from an Inverto Rocket LNB it fit perfekt on the BaMaTech Patchfeed. When I compared the lenses on my, now used, Potty Feed the Venton was a bit better than the Inverto one but as it fit so perfekt I let it on the BaMaTech. See Picture below. I have the first version on the BaMaTech with SMA plug for the 10GHz, attached is modified GM201.


    DD4YR ,

    thank you for the link, but didn't get VLC on the local PC to connnect to the MiniTiouner, with Multicast to other PC works fine.


    When try the settings as described on the the batc wiki page I get nothing, even can't see any packets with wireshark, VLC just say can't connect. Even when I switch off the firewall to check if this will block something it won't work with VLC and MiniTiouner running on same PC.


    Hardware is a MiniTiouner Pro V2 and Laptop with Win10.


    As well found nothing how I can view a second stream which was one of the reason why I bought the Pro V2.


    Any hint is welcome

    DJ7WL ,

    kann mich nicht mehr erinnern, aber es war >3db bei der BaMaTech im vergleich zu keiner Linse. Aber alles nur in SDR-Console Signal History als Peak auf der CW-Bake geschätzt. Nein habe den Feedhalter nicht geänder, ich habe die Offset Antenne neu gekauft und zugesehen das ich eine bekomme bei der der Abstand vom LNB Halter zum Feedarm möglichst groß ist. Es mag da noch bessere geben, aber bei der DUR-Line fand ich das Preis/Leistungs Verhältnis gut und die Art der Multi LNB Halterung gefiel mir.

    Damit ich nicht so viele "Schüsseln" am Balkon habe verwende ich auch nur eine Antenne für beides.


    DUR-line 85cm Offset auf QO-100 ausgerichtet und 7° Versetzt den Astra LNB. Zuvor hatte ich nur eine 40cm Technisat für Astra, mit dem neuen Setup habe ich sogar etwas bessere Empfangswerte als zuvor.


    Hier noch mit BaMaTech Patch mit externen GM-201 LNB für QO-100 und "normalen" LNB für Astra 19,2, da überlappte das Horn des LNB noch etwas den Reflektor der Patch Antenne.



    So sieht es aktuell aus, POTY für QO-100 und Inverto Rocket LNB für Astra 19,2

    Die Kappe ging bei mir auch nicht so einfach ab. Habe ein Tuch drum gelegt um Macken zu verhindern und sie dann mit Hilfe einer Wasserpumpenzange vorsichtig mit leichten Drehbewegungen abgezogen. Auf der BaMaTech Antenne habe ich die Linse von einem Inverto Rocket LNB verwendet weil der super passt.

    DK1MHW ,

    I use the the lenses of the Venton EXL-T LNBs, I have 2 of them, one from the old single LNB I use for RX and one from a newer Twin-LNB


    Be aware that the single LNB seems not available anymore, at least not as PLL based version and the Twin was anyway a DRO bases, so I just use the Lense of the TWIN LNB.

    I tested my Potty with 3 different Lenses and without. Don't wrie the results down, all I remember is that there was always 2-3db difference between the each step from one Lens to the next better one. Wich result here in about 7db between no lens and the best one.

    Tested with no Lens, the Lens send with the Potty, Lens from Inverto Rocket LNB and Venton Rocket LNB. Results was in that row from lowest to highest signal, user Antenna was the 70cm Offset dish. Be aware this was not perfectly measured, just take the signal history of SDR Console and checked for peak level of the CW beacon.


    If you have a BaMaTec Antenna I suggest to use the Lens from Inverto Rocket LNB as it fit best on the pipe instead of the original cap.

    I have nothing over the LNB, except of the original case I cut at the front. Only protect the Patchfeed to prevent getting water between the plates.



    At Home, Potty and Astra LNB


    Portable, Potty under 110mm drainpipe cap.

    Searching for some documentation/Handbook/staterguide or similar.


    I get the first steps done and would be able to RX a stream via QO-100 but would like to go to next level, i.e. there a 4 green/red lights in the bottom right area and all need to be green but what does it mean if a specific light is on red, how to show the video on external PC, how to RX a second signal and what is needed for it, just a second USB cable seems not the only this need to be done.


    So there are lots of questions if you are new to this. I found a video from Jean-Pierre on youtube seems to be a good explanation for some of the questions but as I don't understand frensh it didn't help much (YouTube - Minitioune pour les débutants).

    Didn't found a document, all I found till now, i.e. here in the foru or on vivadatv.org, helped me to get initially started, but how to get deeper into this. Maybe I just didn't look on the right place.


    So if there is something explain the features and how to use them please give me a hint where I can find them.

    Yes, you can ;-)


    I use currently a Venton single LNB, same I use for NB. But as I would like to use both in parallel I will chang to another LNB soon.

    Only I had to do was to change the LO settings in the software from 9750MHz to 9750,45MHz like I did it in SDR Console. Without this change I wasn't able to RX signals with < 500KS.

    I have a case like shown here:

    https://de.aliexpress.com/item…042311.0.0.11086c37FXPGME


    On backside I have the Antenna/USB/power plug.


    On frontside in the middle I would like to mount the Display , on the on left side power switch and power LED and on right side the LEDs for USB and LNB.


    If you ever seen a case where I made a square hole i.e. for some conector you would know why I would like to use bezel or frame. :-)

    It should cover the border of the hole and make sure there is a proper distance between the metal front and the circuitboard of the display.


    With google I found some for the 1.3" Oled or 2.2" LCD from Digole but not for the 2.6"

    I tested some different applications and at the end go with Gimp.


    I know it maybe over sized for this but I normally use Lightroom/Photoshop to work with my photos and gimp is similar than photoshop so it was a fast learning curve for me.

    As I searched a software allow to add text in a extra layers where I even would be able to edit later, so I can prepare some layouts. I end up with gimp as all other free software I tested didn't satisfy me.

    Drop them a mail and ask for it, worked fine for me. If you don't speak frensh, like me, google translate may help.

    That worked fine for me. I ordered via mail and paid via paypal and about 4-5 days later the parts arrived.

    Hi,

    using UCXlog as well, as for eqsl the propagation was not working as expected while it works for LoTW, I asked via support forum if that could be modified. I got a resonse within 1h that this was changed in 7.96 Beta3. Updated to that version and now it works fine as well on eqsl.


    So if you see same for your eqsl upload just updated to latest beta and you are done.
