  1. hi all happy with my setup and the only problem i have is with my guide camera i use with my oag,occasionally it will not connect but bearing in mind im accessing my set up remotely from the house with about 6 usb items on it so may not be completely the cameras fault ,would really like to try a different make of camera so just wondered if any one could suggest a cheap mono camera with roughly same fov as the qhy thanks
  2. thanks for that but as you know when using sdrp1a you can see a bit more of the spectrum,and nothing showed up there either ,do my settings look ok? thanks iwols
  3. yes apart from noaa 17 which it said was miles out of date this is the list i will be using,the v pole i made was the one you linked to,my try my airband dipole for the next passes,wont be great but should imagine i will get some kind of signal do my settings look ok as well,both below thanks
  4. hi blinky a couple of questions,when you say facing north does that matter,is your inline amp powered externally and do you have a drawing of your v shape antenna as the one i made receives no signal at all,what cable are you using,sorry for all the questions but my first go was a total flop with no signal thanks iwols
