A couple of days ago I Installed rxOS on a Raspberry Pi 3 connected to an Outernet LNA and patch antenna and receiving with a RTL-SDR.com v3 dongle.
Initially had difficulties as I oriented the antenna to I-4 F3 through a glass window. Very poor results - not enough SNR to achieve a lock. I then learned that a lot of newer glass windows, especially low-e and multiple panes, attenuate the signal significantly. When I relocated the receiver where the view is through our wooden roof results were far better with a 6+ dB SNR, packet failure near zero and signal state a constant 4.
Only concern is that the weather globe app hasn’t downloaded yet. I know there has been discussion on another threads, but wondered if anyone might have more recent estimate of the time required for a complete download of that app. Currently I download the grib2 files to my Windows 7 laptop and use Panoply to display the data - very useful.
Glad to be able to participate in this new approach to distributing information.
