It is very very rare that I tune in to 7780KHz for TIAMS’s 2100UTC airing. I just happened to want to try it tonight and see how the changing seasons would affect the propagation of this signal. Turns out it is not too bad, at least for tonight. I was at about S8 to S9 on it. SIO was about 423.
Below are the decodes of the MFSK-64 mode images! Let me know what you think. Drop me a comment.
Hello. I will be streaming music non-stop, with no repeats for a day +7 hours. It is a techno band Autechre’s discography and I will have the entire Conet Project mixed in. http://cast1.hfzone.org:8000/frigid . Please, feel free to listen and make yourself at home!
On to the final step. With Java installed as outlined above, execute RadioExplorer.jar under the Radio Explorer folder you unzipped earlier. In radio explorer, open the eibi-radioexplorer-a20.zip file as below.
So, I purchased a new scanner. I have been wanting a scanner now for about 2 years now. It’s a Uniden BCD536HP and was $500. The receiver is well worth that. I am constantly on this thing scanning my area and other areas. The thing is, the software that makes it possible to run a web server and host and control the unit over the web costs too much so I think I’m just going to use the scanner as a standalone device. It does have recording functions and replay functions that saves files to an micro-sd card. That is a plus. I shouldn’t have teased myself with the software with their 30 day trial. They know that once someone wants to use it and gets a chance to use it, that there is a high chance that someone will fork over the $50. Sorry, not me, I just payed a crap load of money on this unit and you cant even give me something so I can integrate it with windows and server technologies. For now, I will use the 30 day evaluation to give me time to gather the funds for it.
I do have a good system going to operate it along side of my PC tasks and SDR activities. It sits on top of my PC tower with the USB connected to Windows 10 virtual com port. I then turn the scanner on, and it asks me if I want to connect to the PC as a storage device (To grab recording sessions from the scanner) or as a device on a com port. I select com port and open up Proscan 16.3 and I can control it like an SDR suite. I then can make videos about it and etc. Proscan also can serve out your audio using a micro web service embedded in the software. Very convenient.
OK guys, here it is! A rough cut, unprocessed screencast of the ISS passing over my QTH. It was sort of a spur of the moment type of thing. I though, well, I have enough time to open OBS screen capture software and with time to spare recorded what you see here. This is the ISS acting as a repeater for APRS communications as it passes over. I hope you enjoy!
