Hi all, Nice to meet you all. Just wanted to chime in on my progress with my DC and introduce myself.
I grabbed a couple Dreamcatchers to fiddle around with (one currently based in Suffolk, UK), I’ve finally got my prototype antenna up and working, it’s given me a boost of about +4db, I plan to cut the cone down and shorten it, for now though it all seems to be working. Nominally I’m seeing about -11.5-12.5db SNR.
I’ve established a lock and am successfully downloading files, all of this has been completed without any precision aiming of the antennna with the use of a camera tripod and bits of wood & metal laying about.
With my additional DC, I plan to deploy this in the south of Spain. When lockdown calms down I’ll be working on making this happen.
