The next task is getting a 13cms TX setup, probably with a separate dish.
Is there any news on possible launch date.
thats great to hear.
I have yet to box my minitioune but want to use it with Es Hail Sat.
What kind of RX levels are you getting?
Could you perhaps share your settings and a screen shot of the Minitioune display.
Re launch...... maybe 2018 LOL
who knows I have seen no updates for a while
The signal from Badr4 is not strong but decodes well. I am using a old Sky LNB which is not particularly good but a 0.1db device is on order.
I am using a Technomate TM-5500 D satellite receiver and looping the IF output to the serit tuner. The broadcast signals use a high symbol rate of
27500Ksps which Minituone V 0.7 handles very well.

I have a modified dual output LNB somewhere that I think I can feed directly to Mini Tioune.
One output is for SSB and the other for DATV.
I was wondering what size dish I would need and it looks like a 1m dish is going to be adequate from your picture.
Unfortunately my garden is North facing and so I am hoping a ground mounted dish at the bottom of thre garden will see over the house roof.
The Badr satellite at 26.0E is now really solid even in heavy rain.
I have been testing my set up performance at 10.495 GHz by using my 10GHz DATV TX acting as a beacon on very low power and have found the LNB to perform very well at this frequency with the IF output at 745MHz into a Serit tuner setup. My Technomate TM-5500 D satellite receiver would not tune to this low IF but I have discovered my CoMag SL30/12 is happy to work down at this frequency and will de code well at 1msb/s.
What is the latest info on a launch date for Es Hail sat 2 ? one site quoted 28/3/2018.
