 Very nicely done Patrick. I ordered the SDRplay yesterday afternoon and will be setting it up on my laptop tomorrow. I'm starting to feel sorry I sold my 2 817's when I downsized :-( but on the other hand I don't really plan on doing much portable ops anymore. Anyway Your last email will be a great help in setting up HDSDR, thanks....

I forgot to post this information here on the -BB. I have uploaded my two RF recordings from HDSDR for the passes I heard on Sunday afternoon/evening, just after 0000 and 0130 UTC. Both are in my Dropbox space at:


Look for the recordings with filenames starting with "HDSDR_20150921"
to get them. I also have photos of my station, screengrabs from the AmsatDroid Free app on my phone, and photos of the configuration I used in HDSDR with my SDRplay receiver - those have filenames starting with
20150920 or 20150921.

I was not able to work last night's passes due to rain at home. If there is no rain, I hope to be on an overhead pass this evening around
0110 UTC with my FT-817ND/SDRplay station to hear the 6 satellites, and making QSOs on the working transponders.
