Further thoughts on this.... are you positive that you’ve installed the correct configuration file in Spectrum Lab? There’s one that comes with the app as standard. Don’t use this one, even though it is listed as ‘Meteor’. You need to use the one referenced in the original Popular Astronomy article as this sets everything required for proper interpretation of the signals coming from the SDR app.
Sorry to be late answering but O have been trying to find transmitters suitable for RMO.
I do not know. Do you mean the MetScat:MJMM.USR file ? I loaded that one and then saved it unader an own name before making any changes.
Yes there is one named MeteorLoggerTest.usr. Just saw it but after reading popastro y saved the ...MJMM.USR file and as written before I saved it under an own name and then made changes in frequency, fc and sp.
Yesterday I got a simple 4 element Yagi antenna for Euro € 10.00 capable according ot the manufacturer to receive VHF/UHF and Radio FM. Now I am waiting for some adapater from F connector to SMA connector as well as getting some pliers for punching Coaxial cables and connectors.
What I thought is a 1 buck investment is now already a 4 buck investment
Also already dismantled an old Satellite TV dish from the roof and installed it on the wall of my observatory near the window so I can turn it 360°. Also yersterday I finished making the mast for the antenna with 1.25" PVC tubing 3 meters long but it is a bit flexible and so I wikk cut it down to 1.6 meters in order it just point over the roof of my Observatory.
All this for initial test.
Main problem is to find a suitable tranmitter more then 400 km away and not more then maybe a 1000 km away.
A HAM guy from USA living in Scottsdale, Arizon is geiving me a lot of help in regard to the ttransmitters.
As soon as I have the Antenna on line I will perhaps see a clearer picture in reragd to transmitters as the Yagi antenna are directional ¿ right ?
I wish we would have a GRAVES radar somewhere but then life would be too easy
Played around and I was able to see some planes with ADS tuning and Dump1090. Interesting
Have a nice weekend.
