Any GS User Using Funcube Dongle Pro Plus Could Help?


#1

Hi there friends,

Would any GS owner help by giving directions on how to set up the satnogs client to work with fcdp+ (funcube dongle pro plus). I mean, would it be possible to give step by step instructions? Mainly my problem is what to insert on SATNOGS_RX_DEVICE and where is it possible to configure gains.

Thanks in advance.

It appears the Funcube Dongle Pro Plus is not natively supported by gr-satnogs as it is not listed in the hardware settings list: https://gitlab.com/librespacefoundation/satnogs/gr-satnogs/blob/master/python/hw_settings.py#L37

You may be better off using an rtlsdr, which work very well with SatNOGS, especially the v3 versions.

A bit of a shame actually… the FCD++ is quite a capable receiver (performance wise), even with the smaller RX bandwidth compared to the RTLSDR. For pretty much all SatNOGS RX application it would be fine.
