Good news, we’ve deployed the first ground station in Switzerland at a very noise less spot (7.35009E,46.83592 N).
The antenna is a TA-1 (Turnstile) + an RTL-SDR V3 stick. The site is a remote HAM radio station with broadband cable internet and 24/7 long term operation experience, technically maintained by HB9EHO, HB9FXQ and DM9KS. When all shortwave antennas are not operated there is a public <30MHz sdr receiver available at http://kiwisdr.hamspirit.de:8073/ to get an impression on the HF noise no site.
It is currently registered in the dev network 226 - now we got two requests:
a) transfer ownership of the dev network node 226 to user TECHNIKRAUM
b) transfer to production network!?
I confirm the request, please transfer the ownership.
Welcome to SatNOGS network! Your station seems in a good working condition, great job!
I created a user account in https://network.satnogs.org , I will send you a PM with the details.
No need to transfer the -dev station as you will be transferring it to production any case.
Make sure to do the following to transfer to production:
- Create a station with all details in production site
sudo satnogs-setup on your client and change the following settings to the new ones:
SATNOGS_API_TOKEN to the new one (check your user page in network.satnogs.org)
SATNOGS_NETWORK_API_URL change to
SATNOGS_STATION_ID change to the new one created in the network.satnogs.org\
- Apply settings and check network.satnogs.org to see the station online
- Start scheduling and keep your station full of observations (if you like help with that let us know)
- Join us on https://riot.im/app/#/room/#satnogs:matrix.org to get to know you and if you need any help!
Once again, welcome!
I can see the station is now live in production! Nice @hb9fxq @laemmy
One note though: You have flagged some observations as “bad” or “failed” although they clearly have a satellite signal visible (e.g. https://network.satnogs.org/observations/89722/)
Please do review the Operation - Rating observations guide on the wiki and let me know if you have any additional questions!
