    Ham radio via geosyncronous satellite?

    Not finding a CW narrowband beacon on G23 maybe it's intermittant... Would be cool if you could use your own uplink station though. hxxps://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/index.php/topic,126358.0.html

    new MIO odd video issue

    Received my new MIO yesterday and set it up last night, took a while for the TV to show video but finally it started working. Had to change video settings, took a while had to change the video/HDMI settings in the TV menu to display the screen properly, too much over scan, wizard allowed me to...

    Fortec Star 1.2m LNBF bracket issue

    I can fit a standard LNBF onto this bracket no problem but the fancy dual PLL LNBF causes interference (mechanical that is) when fit to the factory bracket due to the strange design of this particular bracket. Is there a bracket option that would work better here? Might have to fabricate...

    Frost heaving on BUD this winter...

    I've been out to one of my Buds twice already this winter to re-level the pole... Each time it had moved maybe half a degree. Never have had to do this in the past except maybe once a month or two after initial installation. Almost no snow cover this year in my area, and lots of cold (-30 type...

    AMIKO MicroHD RE: How to add satellite to sat list..

    Not sure why but I seem to have forgotten how to add a satellite to the sat list. Not finding it in any documentation; think it was added to the last software update. This is though the remote, not the ALI editor, which I can't seem to get to see saved data either. I am sure I have added...

    EBSPro only scanning VCM (misses CCM)

    Don't think I changed any settings but for some reason I am only getting odd VCM transponders instead of regular CCM TPs, usually get both. Looked through all the gui settings and can't find anything that indicates TP type etc. If I enter a TP frequency in the "direct tuning and analyze...

    strange C2PLL operation...

    Have been having trouble with some TPs, various satellites lately. Finally had the time to play around with the system, checking connections, switches, power supplies, etc. All seems good. Dish pole still vertical to less than 1/10 of a degree so that's good. Brought out the step ladder to check...

    Winegard HD7698 no sensitivity...

    This antenna used to work great, but had it down for a while when the roof was being re-done. Temporarily had an old radio shack antenna on a pole beside the roof that has been working great for VHF (but poor UHF reception of course until I could put back the good antenna. Well I got around...

    GEOSATpro MicroHD boot loop software...

    Been a long while since I fixed the MicroHD boot loop issue I had a long time ago. Gave the MicroHD to a friend of mine and it looks like he managed to get it boot-looped not long after getting it home. He's bringing it back and I am hoping to fix it... but I can't remember what software is used...

    C-band wifi interference (SDR receiver)

    Testing various LNB/LNBFs for interference issues. This shot was using a Ubiquiti A/P about 3 ft from the feedhorn. Miserable day, something to do... :) Sdrsharp_wifi_norsat8215 by Cham posted Apr 10, 2016 at 3:03 PM

    HH120 position counter failed?

    Was out cleaning the snow off of my C-band dishes and noticed the motorized Ku dish pointing all the way east. Thought that was strange, so when I went back inside I switched it to 99wKu. TP came up a minute or so later and then quickly disappeared again. Looked at the dish and it was pointed at...

    Beginner's software for DVB PCIe or USB receiver?

    Just had delivered a TBS 5980 USB receiver. Got it working fairly quickly but I find the software in the package rather dysfunctional; either you have to purchase a license to get functionality or it's designed primarily for the European or Asian markets, or both. The TBS blind-scanner seems to...

    Losing TPs on C-band...

    Been noticing some TPs seem to be intermittently disappearing from several satellites. Usually horizontal TPs but some vertical TPs as well. I am using a C2W-PLL, Zinwell 4803, and diseqc switch to receiver. Also have an SL2PLL connected to the Zinwell switch. The Ku seems to be fine through the...

    Multi-switch question (s)

    Thought I would try using some multi-switches on my system so I have more sats available to each receiver (4 for now). Just picked up a Zinwell 4803 (Thanx GotCband!) and have an SW44 kicking around as well. The Zinwell looks fairly straight forward; 22KHz on/off selects which LNB and 14v/18v...

    Titanium ASC1 Latest Update

    Did the latest update on my main ASC1. Worked well. Actually added another step to make sure all was ok... hadn't done an upload to the ASC1 for quite a while (last update?), so I transferred the user data to the laptop using V 1.8 loader, reset the ASC1 memory, then uploaded the saved file back...

    RG-11 connectors...

    Anyone have a source of good RG-11 connectors? I seem to have found a 200ft roll at the last ham flea market, but there were no connectors. Think I can use an N male and use an N to F connector adapter, but I would rather just find a few regular connectors for this feedline. Also since I don't...

    dish storm damage...

    Had to re-aim my 10 footer last night. Had a bad spring storm go through last weekend with 3" of rain and 60mph north winds sustained for several hours. The wind actually bent the mast on the dish mount, a 5" 1/4" thick steel tube about 6' long. Moved it about 1.5 degrees. Not sure if I can bend...

    telephone line to wifi phone handset interface?

    Just wondering if there is a gismo that can connect my telephone line (twisted pair) to my LAN (wired) so I can use a wifi capable phone handset anywhere within my LAN (wireless) coverage? Would require two/three parts, one to interface my telephone line to the wired network in the house, one...
