Re: Not receiving email when post gets replies, regardless of settings

Looks like an issue in our backend SMTP login. Google stopped accepting the server login, not sure why. Will look into it.

Re: Alternate to parabolic wifi for NASA GOES reception

The Yagi won't be sufficient unfortunately. Only a dish really has enough gain to work at a manageable size. You can create your own feed for goes. Just using an old coffee can, connector and wire for the element. Search the blog for some of older GOES posts as back then before it was discovered tha...

Re: Meteor M2

Something has been wrong with M2 itself recently, and it's causing the weird constellation.

Re: MSI.SDR wt Gqrx

The MSI.SDR is a clone of the SDRplay. So you could go through the SDRplay docs and see how to get it running on GQRX.

Re: SDRSharp crash with my RTL-SDR V.3 WHY?

We can't really answer this question because SDR# is not developed by us, so we don't know what internal code changes could have broken it for your machine. You'd be best off asking the Airspy group at airspy.groups.io.

Re: Radio astronomy advice

Yeah you won't need to construct a feed with the WiFi dish. If you're okay to construct your own then go for it, but it can be difficult to know if you've got it right if you've never done it before. You can use the NESDR stick but it has no bias tee. So you need to find a way to power the H1+ LNA e...

Re: RTL-SDR not functioning properly at MW band

What RTL-SDR, and what is the mag loop antenna design?
