HI everybody,

Please someone can recommend a splitter suitable for the Eumetcast signal.
Particular characteristics are required?

Many thanks

Rain on LNB - now that's interesting?

geojohnt@...
 

All,

We had a heavy rain shower this morning as a cold front moved in and my SNR (and link margin) dropped quite a bit owing to large rain drops on the LNB face.

I wrote about this in an article for the GEO Quarterly some years ago having made a 'rain shade' out of a 2 litre  plastic lemonade bottle.
There has been no need for a rain shade in the SE for months now and so I had removed it.

I found gently wiping the face of the LNB gained me 2 dB in SNR - and likewise link margin!

Writing this email I thought was it really a 2 dB increase, seems a lot.
I remembered years ago the increases were certainly more than 1 dB by removing the rain drops.
So I tried to replicate the rain drops via a watering can with a rose using tap water.
And, the water merely produced a uniform wet film across the whole LNB face resulting in an SNR drop of 0.3 dB.

Hey-ho.

Regards,
John T.

Hello Roby,

Ah!
Thank's.

I'll stop trying to squeeze that extra '0.1' dB out of my 1 m dish.

Best wishes,
John.

EUMETSAT does not mention HVS-2 traffic on PID 611 anymore
and there is no entry in K.-P.'s smcroute configuration file.
Smcroute cannot route at the same time a) and c) because
of the same destination address. When my version of script
dvb-eumetcast wants to setup the route c) for PID 611 the
similar route a) for PID 610 is deleted (or overwritten?).
So I route a) only and do not even setup a PID for c) now.
Does anybody know what this traffic is for?

Hello Ernst,

My understanding is that Sentinel 3B data is now on HVS-2 although not available to anyone even on test.

I've updated your information, Roby. Thanks! If the location has changed I would appreciate knowing that too, direct e-mail. I fudge it a little to ensure your privacy.

Hello,

I wonder if the EUMETCast user in Trieste could identify the make/model of his/her 85 cm 'diamond' dish please.
You appear to get much higher SNR/Link margin levels than I do with a 1 m offset dish using an Ayecka SR1.

And, what make/model of LNB do you use?

Thanks in advance,

thanks for the reminder. Just switched my Linux receiver to GOES-16 on HVS-1, all runs well.

Graham the image data for NOAA 20 is still on test and not available to users yet.
To be honest I am not sure why it is taking so long to make the VIIRS data available as it has been on test I think for almost 5 months and NOAA 20 is now fully operational.

Its from 2 yrs ago so has worked for me over several updates. All it
means is that you have control over the PC restart and not windows.
Thanks Alan. Having W10Pro with the 'pause update' facility I'm not
sure I need those instructions now.

I set both my PCs to pause. I just turned pause off on one of them and
saw it downloading and installing the latest update. After it
restarted I set it to pause again.

The only thing I need to remember is to check, maybe weekly, if there
are any updates pending install.

Perfect, Alan, thanks!
Did you need to do the file rename and create a dummy "Reboot" directory as well?
Cheers,

TBH, I don't remember,
I did the file rename, but generally just followeed the instructions,

Alan, I think that would be of interest to many folk.  It's not the updates which are the problem, but the unscheduled reboots.  Perhaps just post the source URL?

Barry,
Yes, "Pause updates" is only an option in Pro, one of the reasons I
recommend that version.
Both my PCs (HP Elite SFF) are 2nd hand (ex-industry?) and came with
W10 Pro, so I'm pleased that I have the pause option.

Why is your PC not set to automatically restart after the reboot? That way
you would only lose a few minutes of data. Steps required:
[snip details]

One PC runs my CCTV cameras, the other MSG (FTPHelper), WXtoImg and
Orbitron/SDR# plus VNC to connect to a remote netbook which runs my
weather station. (That netbook is on XP and shows "up-time" of 503
days!)

I think the effort required to get all those to restart automatically
is beyond my expertise.

I'm quite happy to restart things manually - when it's convenient for
me. I.e. no satellites due, cctv unlikely to record anything
significant, etc.

Thanks for your suggestions, but now I'm aware that I can pause the
install of updates, I'll do things manually ASAP after the update has
downloaded.
