I am here more or less in the center of Germany this data is provided currently
by AOR-E at 15.5W.
incorrect, the satellite at 15 Deg W no longer transmits aero data, the best
satellite for mid Europe is Alphasat at 25 Deg E (An Azimuth of around 165deg
understand that the data I would like to receive is Inmarsat C data (data
As I am here more or less in the center of Germany this
data is provided currently by AOR-E at 15.5W.
As I have found out to my
dismay my balcony garnished with an array of sat dishes does not offer me a
free view of this satellite - its path
for my balcony "Sport" is too
far to the west, i.e. on the other side of my terrace house !
A lot of
Money wasted so far.
I now look for a not too expensive good antenna - be
it active or passive - allowing bracket mounting on my already installed roof
Wont be easy to find I guess considering that from there to my RX -
just a Dongle - Funcube and the like - I need some 20m coax cable.
in case of choosing an active antenna I again face the Problem of inserting a
separate Bias T !
The "elegant" solution would be a Passive inmarsat
antenna providing good data despite my cable length of 20m.
Do you know or
already use such a passive antenna - if so please provide details !
round it off and increase my bad luck I discover in a distance of some 150 the
mast of a mobile phone base station !!
