for the auto-scheduler to be able to pick a transmitter for a selected satellite by itself it needs additional information, e.g. on the previous observation success rate in satnogs-network or a “default transmitter setting” in satnogs-db ().
The satnogs-network API provides these statistics for each transmitter via the apiTransmittersList endpoint, e.g.
A (python) script could retrieve the list of all transmitters for a selected satellite from satnogs-db, then ask for transmitter stats from satnogs-network and then choose the best transmitter based on this data.
If there is interest in this, please open a feature request issue in the auto-scheduler issue tracker (you can also just link this thread there). In case you have other questions you can also chat with us on our matrix/IRC rooms.
: Defining a default transmitter (overwriting the stats) is a long-standing feature request tracked in satnogs-network#604.
