I ask for your help cause I have his same problem and I don't know where to look anymore. Multipsk keeps asking for .dll files but they are already into its directory. This is really bothering me cause I have installed and uninstalled multipsk three times already but to no avail.

What version of the operating system?
Where did you install MultiPSK?

Hello Mauro,

 

I have not received email from your email address. Either your provider or mine refuses to transmit the email, for any reason (it occurs often).

 

Try again with the same address or from another address. We must be able to exchange emails before I send you the user key (via an email).

Re: Multipsk not seeing my rtl-sdr dongle, why?

Patrick Lindecker
 

In your Multipsk directory, have you a “RTL_TCP” sub-directory.

 

What is displayed when you click on “RTL and mode selection”?

Thanks Steinar for the information. So I note "1.8m" for 4A-F4 (it would be worst...)

it will be possible to integrate the FT8 mode to the very very Excellent “”Multipsk Soft.””

It would be excellent as it has the JT65 that works very well.

Hello to all,

 

The 4.38.1 version introduces a regression bug about serial port (for numbers >=10) that I fixed in this test version 4: http://f6cte.free.fr/MULTIPSK_4_38_2_test_version_1.zip

 

Paste this address in your Internet Explorer or equivalent. Download the file.
Extract the ZIP file and replace the “official” Multipsk.exe with this test version. Before, make a copy of the “official” Multipsk.exe, in case of.

Multipsk not seeing my rtl-sdr dongle, why?

Francesco Lancellotta <flancellotta@...>
 

My multipsk doesn't see my dongle and if I click on rtl-sdr button then a pop up window comes up saying no rtlsdr.dll BUT this damn files are in the multipsk directory!!! 
What's wrong with this software?? Is there anyone who can help?? I tried to post this morning too but I don't understand how this system works  

Please help me with rtl-sdr v3 dongle and Multipsk #Beginner

Francesco Lancellotta <flancellotta@...>
 

I installed sdr# and my dongle works perfectly (well, the sdrsharp crashes on exit but...) but when I try to use Multipsk it makes me almost crying in frustration. I launch multipsk and select rtl/sdr key but in doing so a warning message appears saying there is a missing rtlsdr.dll file or some others dll. I checked the directory and inside there's the rtlsdr.dll SO why is it not recognising my dongle? Please help, I have been looking all over the internet but people don't give much help, they just say "I had the missing sdr-rtl problem, then solved" but this doesn't help at all.
Francesco

Of course you are quite right, I'm receiving Alphasat 4F4 at 25deg East, apologies for the confusion

Re: INMARSAT C-Band Channels

Hi Paul,

Are you sure you are decoding signals from Inmarst 4F1?  I am decoding 4F1, which is located over central Papua New Guinea and I would have thought the foot print is well beyond your geographical location.  With regards to mitigating the effects of satellite movement, it might be worth considering other means of maintaining the maximum signal possible, in circumstances were we have little or no control over dish movement.  Such measures include using low loss coax, minimising coax cable length and using quality connectors properly fitted.

Cheers,

Chris

Hi Fred,
First, thanks for the Inmarsat frequency list, very interesting, regarding AOR-E the list corresponds with my list very well :)
My location is Southern UK and I receive C band from AOR-E (3F5) and L band from Alphasat (4F1) although on occasions I turn my helix around and get L band from AOR-E.

Regarding reception of C band, you should be able to get good usable data from AOR-E using a 1.2m dish whilst Inmarsat are still using a series 3 satellite - the series 4 seems to have much lower power transponders and require a 1.8m or greater dish.
Here in the UK I'm using a 1.1m offset dish for AOR-E and getting good data and feeding Plane Plotter with the data.

Re: INMARSAT C-Band Channels

Patrick Lindecker
 

Hello Fred,

 

Nice, you will not miss room in your “garden”…

 

>between 40 and 50 degrees elevation.

That’s an advantage. In Paris, 3F5 is at 11° and so it is difficult not to have something between your dish and the satellite.

 

>I'm planning on using a Titanium C-Band LNBF C1W-PLL LNB. 
The C1W-PLL seems to be the best LNBF for this use. However, read this paper:

http://planeplotter.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/121429833/C-Band_LNB_Mod-word.pdf

However, Hervé and Paul don’t seem to have problems, even if they have not modified their C1W-PLL.

Hi, All,

Thanks Paul and the rest of you for your comments on L-Band,
and your prompting me to try C-Band.  I'll get there.  And, yes,
Patrick, I have a "garden."  It is an 8 acre hay field and my look
angle to most of the satellites in question is between 40 and 50
degrees elevation. A good spot.

I'm planning on using a Titanium C-Band LNBF C1W-PLL LNB. 
Any comments?

Re: INMARSAT C-Band Channels

Fred,

HaHa, a 8 acre field, well you should be able to manage a 10m motorised dish on that - Seriously with the satellites at 40-50 deg elevation you should be ok with a 1.2m dish, at my location AOR-E varies between 11 and 17degrees

The LNB you suggest is a good one, it's the LNB recommended by the Plane Plotter group.

Are you a member of the Plane Plotter group (PP), if not I suggest you join, plenty of advice on setting up C-band and you could join the rest of us in feeding PP and plot aircraft as they go across the oceans (new feeders are alway very welcome)



Cheers

Paul
