I have just about lost my mind trying to get SatPC32 to track
FUNcube-1. I just put in the follow keps off of the n2yo page:
*Two Line Element Set (TLE):*
1 99991U 00000 13325.30964218 .00000000 00000-0 10000-4 0 7
2 99991 97.7992 38.2578 0062122 196.7894 338.6768 14.77349691 03
N2YO shows funcube over UK and I show it down by South America. What in the hell am I doing wrong? I set up a separate group to experiment with getting the program to work properly with FUNcube. Initially
I used the preliminary keps and everything worked terrific. I copied FUNcube with a terrific signal. I put the new keps in and it all went to hell. When I put the prelim keps back in, it is still not correct.
I double checked to see if my location is correct. I am tracking FO-29 just fine. Everything seems to work EXCEPT Funcube.
Geesh a pete, I am as confused as the little boy who lost his bubble gum
in a chicken yard.
