I am a beginner and am performing satellite observations but not successful yet.
I am using rpi 3, RTL-SDR dongle and do not have rotator setup but a dipole antenna.
Say, I schedule an observation succesfully, but when the time of observation arrives -
Do I need my rpi to be actively connected to internet for the observation to be triggered and continued for that particular observation to happen?
Is it fine if I connect the rpi once to the internet before the actual time of observation so that time sync happens and then disconnect the rpi from wifi, so that satnogs client triggers observation at right time and saves data offline for later use/processing
For the post processing / after observation, I believe I need to connect my rpi to internet (for satnogs-db / satnogs network…) for uploading the data observed and post processing - am I right? Pls clarify this part of the flow a bit in detail.
Hope my query is clear and understood.
