CQ-TV 263 - what do you want to read and what's your story

Post by g8gtz » Wed Mar 06, 2019 9:26 am

With the launch of Oscar 100 a lot has happened in the last 3 months in the world of ATV.

So the big question is what do you want to read about in CQ-TV 263:

* A simple guide to receiving DATV on Oscar 100?

* What do I need to build a DATV transmit system for Oscar100?

* Modifying my LNB?

* Nothing to do with Oscar 100!

And to save the G8Gxx team having to write everything, what story have you got to tell - can you jot down some notes on the following that we can turn in to an article:

* How I received Oscar 100 and my experiences

* Summary of LNB types and which is best for what.

* An introduction to OBS

* Something completely different!

Come on - let's have your input so we can make it a great issue for all those new members who have joined this month to buy a tuner from the shop!

All of the above and you also have the reference/bias and the dual band feed. It would also be worth pointing to material, what's in the shop, where it the wiki etc.

Apart from a program to accurately predict next weeks lottery numbers, I can't think of anything else.

Howto receive qo-100 is everywhere on the internet.
I really would like and article about DVBS(2) theory and Minitiouner option combined with al the possible modes bandwidth and fec options clearly explained with pros and cons ?
Most people who are interested already now how to point A dish and where to click to receive A signal.

Practical experience with Power amplifiers and dish sizes for QO-100 DATV. Where to get these PAs? What models? Stories with PA sourcing and modifications. Spectrians and polish amps...
