I have a VHF/UHF antenna pair on a rotator in support of my HAM hobby. When I am not using it myself, I make it available to SatNOGS.
As many observations are scheduled automatically and almost non-stop, whenever I want to use my antenna pair for it’s regular purpose I am interrupting scheduled observations which are then vetted as bad or as fail depending on if I take the RPi off-line or just detach the antennas.
I would like to know how, as a station owner, I can block time on my station in advance for a couple of hours or perhaps a whole week-end, where it will not be available to SatNOGS, to avoid people scheduling observations being disappointed, or people having to vet obserations that are not performed.
If not possible today, this may be considered as a future feature. In which case I would like to know the best operating practice for now (take the RPi off-line, or just detach the antennas?)
