Observation 988651: NOAA 9 (15427)

I just made my first ever observation! I’m so happy it worked special thanks to @fredy for helping me out! By the way is this observation successful? I can’t really tell…
Regarding Observation 988651



Two next steps:

  1. Find the gain that gives you the best SNR (signal noise ratio), this will help you to receive satellites better and decode them.
  2. Please take a look on how we currently vet observations on this guide. For example the observation you linked has signal of the satellite so it is vetted as good.

Thanks for the help with vetting!
How do I adjust gain?

If you have the RTL-SDR in satnogs-setup you need to go to advanced settings and change the RF Gain.

Just have in mind that for RTL-SDR you need specific values for the gain, you can find them in https://wiki.satnogs.org/SatNOGS_Client_Ansible#Advanced_Setup

PS Don’t forget to hit Apply after any change in satnogs-setup

Ok thanks, I have been following the hackspace tutorial and I don’t think they mentioned that.
