Thanks for confirming that, Philip. I thought it was correct, but I normally only recommend things I have tried and tested here!

Cheers,

Correct, HVS-2 is on a different frequency.

Re: Bas & HVS-1 receptions

Philip Robinson
 

Hi Vimone
1. You only require one dish. Mine is 1.25metres.
2. You do not require a dual output as only one cable is needed to the
receivers.
3. If you already have a SR1 receiver, you must have another receiver as
well. This can be another SR1, but i have the highly recommended TBS6903
which works well under windows10
4.The cable from the antenna must be split in to two so then there will
be a cable to connect to each receiver. I use a splitter near my
computer and now i have two cables. One cable goes in to the RF input
of the SR1 and the other cable in to the TBS6903 PCI card.
5. I have BAS and HVS-1 on the SR1 and HVS-2 on the TBS6903 card.
6. I use Davids software for viewing
MSG Data Manager for HVS-1 and BAS data
ModisL1 Viewer for HVS-2 data

As regards setting up . I suggest you read the manuals on Eumetsats
website https://www.eumetsat.int/access-our-data, and David Taylors
website http://satsignal.eu/for his software manuals. This video might
help as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dI46O1HeGrU
I am not confident enough to assist in setting up someone else system
, it was hard enough for myself . I would hate to suggest something that
may mess things up for you.

All i can tell you that the above hardware setting up works perfectly.
Good Luck
Philip

Yes, one dish handles both BAS, HVS-1 and HVS-2.

Either: dual output and two receivers

Or: single output and a dual receiver such as the TBS6903.

Ayecka SR1 receivers only take either BAS/HVS-1 or HVS-2. I've not used an SR1 for both BAS and HVS-1 so that information needs to be checked. Only RF1 is activated for EUMETCast.

Re: Bas & HVS-1 receptions

Philip Robinson
 

Hi

There is only one line from the dish and I use a splitter and  then use one of the cables to the RF1 input at the SR1 for BAS and HVS-1 , and the other cable to the TBS6903 PCIcard for HVS-2.  I had a lot of help on here to get it all working and just glad to give a little advice back..although I am not too technical. Hope that reassures that it does work.

 

I was advised to use the SR1 for BAS and the TBS6903 for HVS-1 and HVS-2  , so it seems to work either way but I already had BAS and HVS-1 set up on my SR1 so I just used the other cable to the TBS6903 for HVS-2.

Regards

Philip

Philip,

Did you use both output RF1 an d RF2 of the SR1??

Did you use an Dual output LNB???
Please can you explain me how to do maybe off the list to not create a lot of messages?

Re: TP 1 SNR - 'level.'

David and Douglas,

I animate MSG-4 IR Europe sector 24/7 and there was indeed a lot of bad weather in Europe but the worst (purple) was east of eastern Austria.
Around the two uplink stations at that time is was fairly 'clear' compared to the east.

But something certainly whacked the signal.

Regards,
John..

Yes, Europe-wide, both transponders.

Markus,

as you know, there is no free lunch. And especially Open Source software doesn't work by just "asking" for something.
I have already fixed a couple of things in drivers for Linux and Christian has also tested the RASPI with a TBS-5925 as
router. Unfortunately he always had too much lost packets and we found no cure. TelliCast is COTS software of Newtec
and EUMETSAT has little influence whether or not Newtec makes an ARM version available. And as you remember
EUMETSAT already struggles to have a working set of GNU/Linux scripts available. So you might have to dream on.
BTW and IIRC you wanted to make a systemd ready set of TelliCast scripts. Did I miss the publication of those ;-) ?

Regards,
Ernst

The reason for me using the native format is that I have now  2 home's, I am mostly in my home without receiver.
To get it from satelliet is maybe more 'sportive', yes, but even more sportive if you receive it from the actual weather satellites... ;-)
Nice thing of a RPI is that it is very low power (max. 15W, mostly much lower, waiting for new data). So it would be nice if Tellicast also works on RPI; the receiver PC is the one running constantly, processing maybe now and then.
With the native format from internet I can just let my RP run full time, and can show results on the same RPI or another PC (full data processing done on RPI).
Indeed best is to buy the RPI with biggest amount of memory, i.e. 8 GB, it's just 20 euro's more than 4 GB.

And nice thing of the native format is that you can get old data just as easy. That way I was able to create the 3 (now nearly 4)-month A-68A movie.

Interesting to get the data via internet. Btu O think get it vi satellite is more sportive.
I run two Linux receivers and did a quick connect of the Pi to one of the receivers via cifs (samba). Works nice. Files are read direct from the receiver disk. I compiled the Wavelet decompression software on the ARM, runs flawless - the scripts from Ernst use this compiled version. 
You could speed up the processing if you do the Wavelet decompression on the receiver, even uncompressing the .bz2?!

I would choose the 8GB version if some think about buying a new PI4 … or search for a 64bit secondhand computer to dive into Pytroll.

Christian, how do you get the data? Tellicast doesn't work on ARM processors,as far as I know, so you need to use a "normal" PC for receiving, I assume? And you need ARM compiled Wavelet decompression software too, for MSG.

Hi PyTROLL/SatPy Starter Kit users,
 
just for info: I installed the PyTROLL/SatPy Starter Kit V3.0 today successfully on a Raspberry Pi 4, 4GB RAM on MicroSD card. 
I had to solve some minor problems, but I’m amazed what is possible, even with the 4GB version. MSG4, Him8 and GOES16 full disk works, even MSG4 eurol area. I even could do a stacked NOAA-20 picture, all in around 3-5min per image.
S3A/B is not possible at the moment with 4GB ram. Maybe you have to install the system on an USB HD and activate swap to solve this issue or you switch to the 8GB RAM version. 


You really get a tiny little satellite image processor in combination with the PyTROLL/SatPy Starter Kit V3.0. 


I hope some native English speaker give the PyTROLL/SatPy Starter Kit V3.0 a try and we maybe will read something in next GEO Quaterly…?
