I wrote a while ago that I was going to put together a C-band system.
You provided a lot of valuable info that I considered as I developed
It took a while, but I'm "on-the-air" with a 120cm Prime Focus dish
and C1W-PLL LNB.
I have no problems getting data from the 4F3 satellite, but I can't find
the signals from the 3F5 bird.
Do you have a solid ACARS downlink frequency from 3F5 that I can search for
as I position the antenna?
Here are some frequencies I have found on the 4F3. All are listed as the translated
1531.125 - 1200 data
1534.975 - 10500 burst - Good ACARS data
1535.200 - 10500 burst
1535.800 to 820 - 1200 burst
