No waterfall available after pass


#1

My VHF station 568 works fine. My identical UHF station 724 shows no waterfall icon or waterfall after a satellite pass but shows an audio icon but there is no audio to show or hear. I have tested Antenna, LNA & RTL-SDR with Gqrx and it works.
I reinstalled the RPI image and went though all the satnogs-setup again after updating and upgrading the RPi.
I did remember to apply my changes before exiting satnogs-setup.
I don’t know how to diagnose this further or what logs to to post to help. I have been looking for a hardware fault for 5 days.
Where to now?

Hey,

If you haven’t tried, please reboot the rpi and check again if the issues still exists.

If you tried it, then you should check the logs with this command:
journalctl -u satnogs-client.service

You can also check them live by this command:
journalctl -f -u satnogs-client.service

Let us know if you spotted any error.

Thanks fredy for your time and patience.

I have rebooted many times. Trouble is I don’t know what I’m looking at when I run
journalctl -f -u satnogs-client.service But I can’t see “ERROR”

Putty terminal won’t let me cut and paste so I went to http://10.1.1.161:5000/ and cut and pasted from there maybe it will help you diagnose my problem. It all looks like it is working but no waterfall icon is returned after the observation. There is an audio icon but no audio.

I have a real API token where it shows xxxxxxxxx. I use the same API for station ID 568 and ID 724
