Date   
SSTV PIcture Lost??

Floyd Bixler
 

Been working with different SSTV decoders and have a problem with MultiPSK.  I was receiving one of the best pictures from the ISS I've had in awhile,  But when the transmission was finished, the picture disappeared and is not to be found. 

I'm hoping someone can tell me where this picture went, if it's still retrievable, and how to avoid this in the future.

The picture history button is empty.

Tks.

Re: Test version not using VDL2 station list #aero

Patrick Lindecker
 

Hello Dave,

 

It seems that Multipsk does not read the VDL2 GS list. Are you sure that Multipsk starts from its directory (check the link properties). If so,  you must see your license name on Multipsk.

It could be some bug during the 4.38.2 downloading (you can check the MD5 signature).

 

>I know the filename for MMSI changed a few versions back.  Did something similar happen with VDL2 recently?

No.

I just rechecked yesterday and test version 2 is definitely not getting the data from the file.

I know the filename for MMSI changed a few versions back.  Did something similar happen with VDL2 recently?

Hi Dave,
 I'm not sure which "test" version you are using but the latest standard release (V4.38.2) works ok (I assume you mean you're not getting the ground station name showing)

I request the collaboration from any part of the world to continue with the

Sergio, can you please share the records with GSIF (Ground Station Information Frames) data you find in these logs with me or post them on the acars-vdl2 group??
So they can be added to the “VDL2 Ground Stations With GSIF” database in the acars-vdl2 group at https://groups.io/g/acars-vdl2 ??

If that is too much work I would like to ask everyone to also send their logs (or preferably the output of Stuart's VDL2stats program) to me too..
For those who have not tried the VDL2 stats program I can strongly recommend it.
The VDL2stats program can be found in the Files section of the acars-vdl2 group.

Thank you,

Hello Arnaud,

 

What exact GPS frame are you speaking about? Have you examples of position software?

Hello,

I have a feature request to multipsk.
It was interesting if it can be able to send decoded EPIRB position in GPS format type thru a serial port. With that we can send position to many position software we use or to another device like portable or bluetooth connection.

Thank's for reading

Re: Bug in Clock?

David J Taylor
 

Hello David,

TKS for the interesting links. You are right. For ms of accuracy, Internet is the best (personally, I use Abouttime). However, Clock, in its function of updating the PC time, is sometimes used by persons not having an access to Internet (in general because they are not at home but in portable).

Patrick
=========================

Thanks for your insight, Patrick.

If I were portable without an Internet connection I might either:

- use the mobile data connection from my phone in tethered mode.

- use a GPS puck ideally with a PPS connection (like I use with the Raspberry Pi). This can provide both time of day from the NMEA data, and precise seconds from the PPS.

I read of many problems trying to use broadcast time services at least in urban environments.

BTW: you might like to try the reference NTP implementation detailed on my Web pages, it has many advantages:

Keep up the good work!

Bug in Clock? - Test version 1 of Clock

Patrick Lindecker
 

Hello Philip, Ralf and all,

 

The 1.11.8 test version fixes the bug relative to the BBC date: http://f6cte.free.fr/CLOCK_1_11_8_test_version_1.zip

 

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

 

TKS for report.

Could I ask a novice's question about this?

Are you using the clock function just for fun, or to set the PC's time?

If the latter, you really should consider using NTP which is free, and available for Windows (and other OSes). See:

https://www.satsignal.eu/ntp/setup.html

You can get timekeeping well under a millisecond:

https://www.satsignal.eu/mrtg/performance_ntp.php#windows-stratum-1

There's no way I would consider setting the PC's clock off a broadcast time signal these days (but I have have radio clocks throughout the house), but perhaps that's just me! Comparing it with NTP to see propagation effects is another matter, though.

Cheers,
David

Re: RSP2 decoding with VB cable

I use the Free VB Cable software with my version of SDRuno and it works with MultiPSK, MMSSTV, DM780, RX-SSTV and a number of other programs that need a virtual sound port.

Hi,

Took me a while to figure this out.

This is to report my SDR play RSP2 rx running with HDSDR is decoding
using VB cable and MultiPSK.

The VAC cable is only required when running SDR Uno software.

Could you make a WAV recording for several minutes (with the best signal possible). With the real day and the wrong day, it will be easier to fix. Thanks.

Hi Patrick,

I think there is a bug in CLOCK with time sync on BBC. I use the actual version 1.11.7.
I tried it a few days before at 31 January and got 01 February as decode result. Next day, I decode it again and it was correct.  At this point I thought I did something wrong the day before.

Today I got "14" as day, when I decode the signal. I tried it serveral times in USB and LSB. Always with the same wrong result for the day.



Is it a bug or did I something wrong or send they really wrong data?
73, Ralf
