SatNOGS DB - null Mode description breaking satnogs-monitor

A while back I logged an Issue with @wose’s awesome satnogs-monitor tool. Basically if the Mode (or Downlink Mode) in SatNOGS DB is defined as ‘-’, it triggers a display error in satnogs-monitor until that future observation comes due (can be up to 48 hours!) or you delete the observation manually:

Details here:

I just proposed a SatNOGS DB change for the Mode to be changed to ‘FM’ in for Blue Diamond and Red Diamond. Green Diamond is listed as FM and does not trigger this display error. But maybe this needs to come from the XXX Diamond team and not yours truly.

Also updated the satnogs-monitor Issue with this information for a possible parsing/bug fix on that end.



Both suggestions have been accepted. Thanks!

If you have some more time could you perform the same with the rest of the transmitter that don’t have mode assigned?

In this list SatNOGS DB - Transmitters you will find them with mode None. Sorting them by mode it will group them, but unfortunately you will need to navigate through pages as the filtering doesn’t work for None value.

@fredy - gladly, here you go. And thank you!

Verified by scheduling one observation for one satellite:

  • check satnogs-monitor to see if it breaks with one new observation
  • delete new observation to see if satnogs-monitor is fixed by removing it
  • repeat above/move on to next satellite

Most of these break satnogs-monitor.
