Observation 1630680: MAX VALIER SAT (42778)

Regarding Observation 1630680.

Hi, how would you judge this ? I have a small trace on the waterfall but nothing audible.

Hi Martin,

It is a difficult pass (maximum elevation 9 deg, not so strong satellite emission).
I compared with https://network.satnogs.org/observations/1056398/ and your trace is at the exact same frequency on the waterfall and has the same form so I would want to believe you got it.



Thanks for your input - I worked on the antenna and built a small LNA using a PGA-103 today so I hope I will get the NF down. I also used some 43 type ferite on every possible wire getting in and out of the Rpi to get rid of some of the noise.

Let’s see how this sat behaves in the next days !

I can plainly see CW in the lower center portion of the waterfall. I would vet as “good”.
