Hello Ian,

Yes, same here (SW London) - way down on what it should be.
and again clear sunny skies and 'hot!'

I thought it might have been some tall flowers growing in front of my dish, which keep growing - but obviously not.

Welcome to the group, Martin.

It's the quality (or SNR) which matters much more than the level, unless you have a very long cable (> 20m).

I note that instead of "0 gold 0" I have "1 root 1" on my BDADataEx instances, for both transponders. I can't use the TBS IP Tool as it crashes my system.

What exactly is your problem?

yes quality is important over SNR...but very important is continue BER 0...
my cable leght over 25m,dish 110/90 in H-H motor,but all work without problem...
TBS5925 is first TBS CCM USB tuner,have some bugs (very warm, low sensitivity, sometimes freezes) but has a tuner and can be used without problems for BASIC and HVS-1..for HVS-2 already looks sometimes ... TBS5927 is doing better, does not heat at all, is about 20db more sensitive, but has only input ..

for layes scramble ...if use ROOT 1 dont work for me (no lock signal) i use more year only GOLD 0
TBSdata Service sw if good for indicate how PIN active in strenam,but mean when BDAdataEx is stable

Re: Tbs 5925 - Problem with modcode For HVS-1

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

Hi everyone, My name is Samuele. I'm from italy... My english speaking is very bad, i hope you understanding my problem: last year, with my old PC (updated from windows 8.1 to windows 10 two years ago) I correctly received satellite data from the 8PSK (bas) and 16APSK (hvs-1) modcodes. Unfortunately, a few months later the motherboard died and I had to change computers. I have reinstalled all the software following the procedures and the indications of Eumetsat but nowadays I only receive the data from the modcode 8psk while from 16apsk the quality is always at 0 In this time frame I have only changed computers, the satellite dish has not been moved. As a receiver I have a TBS5925 and the data is processed by BDADataEx version 1.1.4.9. Do any of you have a solution to my problem? Are there other people like me who already happened? Thanks in advance for your reply.

Samuele
=======================================

Welcome to the group, Samuele! Sorry to hear of your problems.

I have some notes on MODCOD settings here, which may help:

https://www.satsignal.eu/wxsat/Ayecka/Next-steps.html#modcod

but they are for the Ayecka SR1 receiver.

For the TBS/BDADataEx program, on the MPE Filter tab, set the Multicast PID to 8192 to get both BS and HVS-1 data. Click "Apply Settings".

I hope that helps.

Ciao,
David

Re: EUMETCASTView - Blue lines

Hugo
 

Hello,

The website http://hvanruys.github.io is maybe a bit outdated, but if you should read "VIIRS images" and "Making projections" you should have a better idea how EUMETastView works.
The second image you send is the raw image. It needs to be projected. This process will remove the blue lines.
Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Hugo

Fire detection Amazon via Eumetcast VIIRS

Hello,
Could you kindly tell me the correct settings for viewing the wildfires spreading in the Amazon region.
My MSG-1 manager shows only GRIB fire detection but no mention of VIIRS ! I just asked Eumetsat to add VIIRS to my account.
Thanks in advance,

Metop-C EARS regional data will start being distributed from 29 August 2019

Metop-C data will be added to the following regional services:

EARS-ATOVS (MHS and AMSU-A)
EARS-AVHRR
EARS-ASCAT

Notes:

Metop-C data will be added to the EARS-IASI service at a later stage
Metop-C data will be added to the EARS-NWC service when Metop-C is declared the prime operational Metop spacecraft, at which time the Metop-C data will replace the Metop-B data in the EARS-NWC service.

EUMETCast distribution:

The data will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe, Basic Service, using the following channel:

EUMETSAT Data Channel 1
Multicast address: 224.223.222.1
PID: 500
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My AVHRR Manager software has been processing this data for some time, so you should have no issues. No second or third instance required, just the current version:

Goes-16 & 17

Ferdinand Valk
 

For quite some time now the availability of both Goes 16 and 17 has been
meager to put it mildly and it looks as if backlog files get priority over
real-time data when something is disseminated. I wonder what is going on
here as EUMETSAT's UNS service, OSSI status and Alert messages do not
provide any information.
Does anyone know of any other source that is more informative on the
subject?

Thanks.
Ferdinand

Am I correct in saying it was the HVS-1 channel which Eumetsat added
in-fill data to in order to resolve problems with the TBS hardware.
I have been quite busy at my computer recently which has drawn my
attention to the BDADataEx icon on the Taskbar going green (instead of
blue) quite frequently. On checking as expected the data rate is at 0
for short periods.
I cannot remember the full significance of the problem but I know it was
detrimental to reception and may explain imperfections in my HVS-1 set-up.
Is anyone aware of what the current arrangement is and whether it has
been changed.
I use the TBS 6903 for HVS-1 to separate it from the basic service on my
SR1 for the occasional bad weather we get here in Scotland !

Douglas.
=====================================
DOuglas,
I've been looing back over my 2014 August onwards mails, but it's difficult to find the exact discussion.  I think it would have been before HVS-2, and it was certainly something like what you described, a lack of data flow causing something (a disconnection?), and there was something to do with buffer sizes and TBS supplying a driver with (IIRC) one tuner having an 8-byte and the other a 64-bytes buffer.  This was experimental, and caused large, but almost equal, numbers of missed and recovered packets.  I recently went back to the old driver (1.0.5?) and these packets disappeared. It was a question of when that buffer emptied, something happening.  Of course, in TV reception a continual stream is expected, not bursts.
I cannot now recall whether EUMETSAT did add fill packets or not (ask ops, or K.-P.) but I'm unaware of any recent changes in that respect. On both tuners the Multicast PID is set to 8192.  On TP1, I have MODCOD set to all, and on the TP2 tuner to 16APSK 2/3.  I don't use the BS data from TP1 on that system, but the BDADataEx software will "see" BS data.
Sorry for a somewhat incomplete and unsatisfactory reply.
73,
David GM8ARV
==========================================================================

Don't apologise David as that has filled in some of the gaps in my recollections.
They definitely did put in fill packets, but perhaps stopped it given the amount of data now being sent on HVS-1. Of course at the moment, and yet again, GOES data has virtually stopped so perhaps I am paying too much attention at a time with minimal data flow.
No news re the PDA service from NOAA but if that is to blame yet again it seriously needs smartening up.

Once services return to normal I will make an effort to check the BDADataEx icon more thoroughly.

Thanks for your help David.

Regards from a wet Dunblane,
Douglas.
