Gpredict sound during communication


I was wondering if there is a way to enable sound whenever a Satellite starts to pass above the ground stations.

Thank you

Hi Roee,
If you mean whether there is a built-in function that plays a sound, the answer is no, there is not.

Hi csete, Thank you for your answer

Do you have an idea for a simple way to implement it? (Is there a place where I can get the information so I can create a script for it)

Actually, there is a way if you can program in some scripting language.

The radio control interface uses the hamlib network protocol but it has been extended to send “AOS” and “LOS” strings whenever these events occur. This is used in gqrx to start and stop the audio recorder.

It requires gpredict devel code from git. There you find the option under radio interface settings.

Take a look at it if you are interested and don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions.
