Over the last few days our SatNOGS station has occasionally begun to flag all passes as “Failed”. This occurred last night during several ISS passes, which is particularly annoying since our SatNOGS-dedicated 20-element yagi does a great job of pulling in these passes. For those passes there’s no waterfall or audio. A reboot of the Pi cured the problem but it reoccurred this afternoon. This time was quite strange - the pass would initially be marked as “Unknown” and then a few minutes later would be marked as “Failed”. For these passes the waterfall was present and the audio file could be played from the portal. I’m in the midst of upgrading the SatNOGS client to the current version but would like to resolve this issue quickly so that I can capture the remaining ISS SSTV passes this week. Any suggestions?
