I have three feature requests;
External downconverter support. This should have a configurable LO frequency and high/low side mix option. The frequency from SatNogs scheduler would be computed for Doppler at the original frequency, but the SDR tune frequency would have the LO offset + mixing sideband options applied. This would for example be very useful for S-Band satellites at 2200-2300MHz where the majority of SDR’s are poor performers.
LNA / Antenna switching. This would have a config file with upper / lower frequency limits and tuning between these limits would toggle a GPIO pin high. for example:
Freq Hz / GPIO Pin
At the end of the pass, all GPIO pins in the config file would be set low to turn off anything unused in terms of LNA / external D/C etc.
- Repeat Scheduling. When selecting a satellite for a scheduled observation, you should be able to select all future passes that are visible from the ground station.
Thanks for Considering.
