I picked up the DIY kit w/CHIP, connected and powered it up. Setup for North America, it's setup outside however, I really don't know what I'm looking at or for. Connect to the outernet wifi, but trying to connect with my browser yields: "Your receiver doesn't seem to have reported in. Err: null" Is that telling me whatever satellite I'm looking for isn't really there? Rob KA2CZU

Is that mini geo definitely going up? If so, when is the launch? The idea you are proposing makes sense. We have three UHF cubesats that should be complete by May. I'm sure there are ways to work together on that.
It is part of a large geostationary satellite due to launch at the end of 2016 http://www.spacex.com/missions https://spacexstats.com/missions/future I assume at this stage all the equipment is more or less ready waiting for the launch. It is listed on this page as late 2016:
Many European stations are getting ready to receive signals with a slightly modified TV LNB, connected to around a 1m dish. Narrow band uplink will probably need a 1m dish and a 10W amplifier on 2300Mhz. Wideband DVB-S uplink is possible but I assume it would need a much larger dish. There is a narrow band DVB-S format with reduced bit-rate. I have lots of experience in this area. _______________________________________________ Sent via [email protected] AMSAT-NA makes this open forum available to all interested persons worldwide without requiring membership.
