QUESTION: Is there any advantage in using the Pluto setup as opposed to the Lime/DATV Express?
I have read the new post on the BATC Wiki.
My tuppence worth.
I was an early buyer of a Pluto and felt a bit left out as Portsdown went the Lime route. However, now with the work from Evariste and also the remote control software of Jean-Pierre Pluto is making a bit of a comeback. The signal quality produced by the Pluto is really good with constellations that are very tight and low secondary regrowth shoulders, I can't speak for the Lime in these areas. I'm currently putting together the necessary bits to run my Pluto remotely and send signals to it from OBS. I'll keep my Portsdown 2018 for lower bands but for my QO-100 aspirations Pluto is ideal.
The next DATV tranceiver, that will come out the day after you order whatever you order, will no doubt be better still.
