I have a friend who is going 6 months/1years on the island of amsterdam (india ocean).
I would like to give him an omnidirectional station link to satnogs.
For now here is the config envisaged:
QFH antenna 430mhz DIY.
LNA4All (standard, optional)
Raspberry pi3b +
- rj45 / official alim5v
Everything except the antenna will be in a waterproof case.
On this island apart from a satellite connection there is nothing (no FM, no mobile network and no wifi).
So I would like to know that it is the average flow required for a satnogs station ?
If the project is concluded I intend to continue my connection with the French Polar Institute to take this station to the Concordia base (Dome C).
What do you think ?
Advice on the material chosen? (be careful it leaves on October 28th so not a lot of time).
Why not VHF? Because we can only bring a lot of stuff and a VHF antenna takes a lot more space than a UHF.
