David,

That was an interesting link.
I hadn't thought about using silicone grease.
I ordered some F connector boots last autumn and they were 'too small.'
I had to cut a 'split' in them to fit over the F connector - thus exposing the cable entry on one side of the boot.
Not good.

I usually use self amalgamating tape which works well till you need to undo/get to, the connector/cable.
Can alter your dish alignment as you fumble around..

If Philip meant 'what cable should I use.' then CT100 is the 'satellite TV standard cable.'
There is also RG6 - but I don't know anything about this.

CT100 comes in 'silver' aluminium(?) braid and foil or copper braid and foil versions.
I have used both and think copper braided and foil cable is 'better/preferable.'

Regards, 
John.
 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



Generally "F-connector", but I have seen cable size variants so if I was 

being very fussy I would order the connectors from the cable supplier.

Some hints here: http://www.satcure.co.uk/tech/fplugs.htm

Cheers,
David

Ferdinand,

AFAIK I added 'hawaii' to the areas.yaml file distributed with V 3.0. Your area_extent is somewhat larger than mine. And the 'lat_ts' might not be necessary.
There is a similar case with 'japan' for Himawary-8. Does your environment variable not point to the new areas.yaml ?

Have fun,
Ernst

Hi!

Check your power supply and replace it, if original, with an stronger one.

Betreff: [MSG-1] SR1 Controller frozen.

 

Hello All,

 

During the recent run of cold fairly constant rainy grey weather, my SNR has been 'lower than normal.'

I did try re-aligning my dish a couple of times but to no avail.

 

Since the rain stopped this week, though the weather remained cold and grey most days, things dried out and my SNR went up to 'where it should be.'

I'm now convinced the ever growing next door neighbours fir tree is again on the edge of Eutelsat 10-A's position.

The almost constant rain causing the wet branches to sag in my dish's line of sight of the satellite.

 

Having now had a 'usual' signal all week - but been busy on my day to day computer at the same time, I only glanced at the SR1 Controller readout occasionally.  

I thought my SNR is remarkably steady these days at 13.4 dB.

Usually there is some variation.

 

Then I noticed the Traffic meter wasn't moving.

Tellicast showed BS and HVS-1 data was actually flowing correctly and Telnet showed that my SNR was actually 13.5 dB with BS link margin 7.6 dB and HVS-1 link margin 4.2 dB.

 

Some will recall that my SR1 Controller quite regularly shows a high 'negative figure' of Traffic with the dial at 0 for around 5 seconds before resetting .

A problem know to EUMESAT and Ayecka as I informed them.

 

Closing and reopening SR1 controller fixed 'its freezing' and Traffic flow is indicated again.

 

New Year's resolution - apart from avoiding Coronavirus - kill the fir tree.

 

Regards,

John Tellick.

Ernst,

 

I suppose you included ‘hawaii’ in your sample script goes17.py as a training example. Added a quick area definition to areas.yaml in the pppconfig and got the attached .

In case of interest, I added:

-------

hawaii:

  description: hawaii

  projection:

    proj: stere

    ellps: WGS84

    lat_0: 20.50

    lon_0: -157.4

    lat_ts: 20.5

  shape:

    height: 1600

    width: 2844

  area_extent:

    lower_left_xy: [-800000.0, -450000.0]

    upper_right_xy: [800000.0, 450000.0]

Hartmut,

 

Current users => I don’t understand why python would have to be deinstalled. It all works perfectly well on the existing platform. Satpy was the only upgrade (v0.25.1 iirc). I did rename the existing EMCdata and EMCtools directories to []-Old, so that I have temporarily access to adaptations I made, but no deinstall of any kind was needed.

Dear Members



Here comes the Pytroll/Satpy EUMETCast Windows Starter Kit V3.0 (YES 3.0). It should be "Childs Play" to get it working.
I have double checked all the scripts on my Windows 10 Pro 64Bit PC that got the files readonly from a SAMBA share Z:.

My definition of "Childs Play" remains the same as for V1.0:

 0) You know that you have Windows 10 64Bit
 1) You are not completely new to EUMETCast
 2) You read and follow the HOWTO inside (RTFM)
 3) You know where you find your satellite files

All scripts have been developt under Debian 10 GNU/Linux. An almost identical Starter Kit for this OS will follow soon.

Have fun
Ernst



Re: PyTROLL/SatPy Starter Kit V3.0

Ernst,

 

Thanks for all the work you’ve put into this.  I see that you’ve made quite some standardization, which will make communication between users a lot easier as they’ll all sing from the same sheet of music.

I’ll comment later after having gone through it all.

 

Cheers,

Ferdinand
