Hi Chris,

   I've been able to pull AX.25 frames from the satnogs .ogg recordings of
Falconsat-3 and I usually get more valid frames than satnogs shows on the
webpage when using my brute force demodulator (my brute force demodulator
was the topic of my Symposium paper).
   Can you contact me off the list and let's work out how to automate
demodulating telemetry from the existing recordings (and new recordings as
they get added) and get it into the telemetry server.

73,
Douglas KA2UPW/5

Seemed like a good pass here in Northern California (CM98), starting
around 1845z.  I copied two images, with signals hitting S9+20 at one
point, swamping out a bunch of noise just up the band (145.806 or so).
This was with a 2x8 element CP beam aimed at the station.  I would think
that even a simple vertical antenna would get something, but your noise
was stronger and closer in frequency than mine.  The second image was
copied almost to the horizon, with Doppler helping to considerably
reduce the noise.  You might try narrowing your receive bandwidth as a
filter (I had my FT-847 set to Narrow FM).

Good luck,

Greg  KO6TH

GP-3 vertical on roof going to my SDRPlay. I have a huge noise on 145.804
full scale that I'm trying to track down but I didn't see anything in the
waterfall at all on 148.800.

Hi,

A quick heads-up to say that there may be several short outages over the
next few days as I add more features.

As always, the Dashboards will catch up when the server comes back online.

Will keep you updated.

Right click on the image and copy it to clipboard. Then open paint.exe and
paste it. Save it as a png. You can also save it as a BMP directly from
MMSSTV but I prefer png.

Take a look at Option -> Setup Logging -> Misc.  There's a box for "Auto
save".  My images end up in jpg format, not BMP.  Not sure if that was
an option I hit years ago, or if it's just the default.  MMSSTV version
1.13A.

Hey Douglas,

I didn't write a demodulator. That's done by a TNC or hs soundmodem. Happy
to talk off list but I didn't code this part. It starts with kiss bytes and
then builds the directory, requests fills, supports uploads etc. As a by
product we get the telemetry and I decode and display that.

 got a very decent 1 and 1/2 images from an earlier pass today.
good strength with a whip... some noise due to blockages north of my
position but signal
strength was clearly as good as ever when clear of obstructions.
