just to give Frank, DL3DCW some feedback on his work.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE NICE TOOL!!!
I was totally new to the Raspberry Pi. I ordered a Pi3+B and I was not over stressed with the headless installation of the Pi in my local network.
As well I had no big problems installing the SATCONTROL image provided by the SATCONTROL side.
For unzipping Franks image I used the Raspberry Pi Imager.
With this tool you are able to pick, unziped and copy the file to the SD card by just using one tool. This will than do all the jobs for you.
The SAT RECEIVER program in combination with the SAT CONTROLLER program was a bit challenging to use.
The needed positive feedback, if the SAT CONTROLLER is working or not is a bit tricky in the beginning. I still get nor fcorrection of the tool showing on the display. But it seems to work.
I still do not found my own procedure to get the beacon correction working straight away every time I start the program new.
I needed some more feedback. That for I used the NB WebSDR to compare frequencies.
The planned usage for my setup is to have a low power consuming tool for field operation to setup the RX of the dish to its maximum.
As well to monitor the band while using an analogue field setup.
Resued 10“ laptop screen with external controller board
Reused Logitech BT keyboard 7“ (ipad mini)
Reused BT mouse
Power supply: 12V for screen and DC/DC dwn convtr 12 - 5V for the Pi3
Headphones with the Pi3 (is a bit weak)
So let us hear what your experiences are with Franks program and how you are able use it.
Especially your feedback on your usage of the beacon correction tool is of interest.
so, 73 from JO50PX de DM5TU - sTef
