If the switch to L Band on AO-92 is successful, please listen Friday
morning for N1JEZ/8 from EM79 at Microwave Update. The first at ~ 10:37
local is only 10 degrees. I expect there could be blockage from
surrounding buildings. The second at ~ 12:10 local is 39 degrees and
should be good.

We will be testing a prototype L Band antenna from WA5VJB. It should be
fun! Tnx to Drew and AMSAT for making the switch.

Don't be discouraged by the last set of hurricane pictures.  We were
unlucky and the spacecraft was unstable.  See my analysis here:
http://www.g0kla.com/workbench/2018-10-07.php

Right now the spacecraft is stable and we *should* get a better set of
pictures.  So if you can copy high speed telemetry, please point your
antennae at AO-92 and try to decode an image line or two.  Any single line
is helpful as we stitch the whole photo back together on the server.

The normal Lindenblad omnidirectional circularly polarized antenna has 4
canted dipoles in a circle. If made from 300 ohm twin lead, it has a feed
impedance of 75 ohms. Has anybody built/modeled or seen one made with 6
dipoles? 6 would give a 50 ohm feed and maybe more gain. Ideas?

You can play back a Fox telemetry recording into FoxTelem at any time.  The
timestamps are written by the spacecraft into the header of the telemetry
frame. We slot the data into the data set filling any holes.

We do also store the time stamp from your computer when it was decoded and
another when it was received at the server.  We use those timestamps to
synchronize the clock on the spacecraft back to UTC, by working out what
time the on board computer last reset. But that algorithm uses data from a
small number of ground stations.  We make sure their clock is accurate and
they decoded the data real time.

I?m pulling out what little hair I have left. I have borrowed a friend?s
IC-910, and want to feed the output of the radio to both a signalink USB and
also to the direct Line-in of the laptop to receive the 9600 bps signal off
of the 9600 pin 4 of the Data mini DIN. So here is what I did:

First, I took a cable that was straight through all 6 pins and added a RJ-45
connector on the end, in such a way that pin 1 of the mini DIN was pin 1 of
the RJ45 connector, pin 2 was pin 2, ... pin 6 to pin 6, etc...

I created a patch panel with two patches, one that is straight through, and
one that crosses pins 4 and 5. More about that in a bit.

The signalink was wired in such a way that it is expecting the input on pin
5, and ground on pin 2. So in this case when I connect up the cable to the
signalink with a straight through cat 5e cable, it gets the audio out of the
rig at 1200 bps (pin 5).

When I want to use the 9600 bps out, I unplug the cable from the patch panel
and connect it up to the other patch, where it takes pin 4 (9600 bps) and
throws it on pin 5 of the patch panel output. I then have a cable that takes
pin 5 and brings it to the tip of a TS 3.5mm mono cable. Pin 2 (GND) goes to
the sleeve. I then plug this into the mic input of an older Apple MacBook Pro.

I remembered to set the IC-910 to 9600 mode. I start FoxTelem and set the
input to the Mac?s wired mic input, but I never decode anything.

One thing that is odd to me is that when I toggle the 9600 mode on the
IC-910, I do not see / hear a difference. I would imagine it should toggle
some signal on and off the pin 4.

Any ideas would be highly appreciated. I have also just tried a simple cable
with pin 4 to the tip and pin 2 to the sleeve, and have seen similar results.

I appreciate any ideas, criticism, etc...

If you listen to a local repeater does the audio flow through fine to
FoxTelem?  Can you hear it?

Show us a screen shot of the display when it is trying to decode. If the
bits do not look like a square wave then the signal is being filtered
somewhere in the chain.

Yes, the levels are maxed out. I also hooked up an oscilloscope to verify
the signals presence on the line.

takes pin 5 and brings it to the tip of a TS 3.5mm mono cable. Pin 2 (GND)
goes to the sleeve. I then plug this into the mic input of an older Apple
MacBook Pro.

some signal on and off the pin 4.

cable with pin 4 to the tip and pin 2 to the sleeve, and have seen similar

OK, I will try all of the suggestions when I am back at the house with a
nice pass. Thank you all
