Re: Satellite tracking VFOs Uplink Downlink with external radio request

I'm using SDR Console more and more for satellites and tracking VFOs would be a great function.
@simon What do you think about this, it it possible?

Re: REQ: FT8 Digital mode

Jean, do you have any problem using WSJT-X with SDR-Console?

Satellite Custom Data XML files available for download

Hi all satellite users! With the help from Christophe from AMSAT France a lot of Satellite Custom Data XML files has been auto generated. I have then manually edited some of the most used satellites. You can download all these XML files from this post: https://amsat.se/2021/01/26/satellite-frequency...

Satellite tracking VFOs Uplink Downlink with external radio request

Hi (Simon) and all! The external radio in satellite tracking is working very good for FM satellites, I have done some QSOs with an IC-705 as TX rig. The possibility to adjust the frequency from the IC-705 is very good. But, for transponder sats with SSB, for exemple RS-44, it gets hard to use SDR Co...

Re: IC-705

Yes, PstRotator is VERY flexible - you can use it without rotator. It has a full satellite tracking function. 20 Euro is a bargain. I actually use PstRotator as rotor controller from SDR-Console. If using SDR-Console for the downlink, I use the external radio with IC-705 from SDR Console for uplink ...

Re: IC-705

Andy, as I understand the satellite tracking from SDR-Console only tracks and doppler adjust uplink with external radio. The downlink you should use a SDR as the downlink is doppler corrected. It seems that the VFO-B of the IC-705 can not be selected from SDR-Console with the current Omnirig INI fil...

Re: IC-705

Solved! I did an error when changing hex code in the config file. Works fine now.

IC-705

Hi,
anyone got the IC-705 working with SDR-Console?
The Omnirig INI files can be found here: https://sm7iun.se/station/ic705/
But can not get this to work with SDR-Console. It works fine with PST Rotator.

Satellite Automatic Schedule - antenna always tracking

Hi! If using the Satellite Automatic Schedule and selecting "Enable Tracking" in the satellite control, the antennas are always tracking the satellite even if the satellite is not visible. If de-selecting "Enable Tracking" in the satellite control, the antennas are not tracking at all. Is it possibl...
