@Branko for rough alignments also I am getting signal from ABS2. Will update more soon :slight_smile:

For reference, bitrate should be around 90Kbps. 787bps sounds way too low. You probably need to refine the dish alignment.

@branko It is heavily raining here. :satellite::cloud:
Waiting for clear SKY :slight_smile:


#5

Yeah, that also helps. :smile:


#6

Dish setup - ABS-2


#7

Do you have a clear view of the sky from there?


#8

Yes. But signal strength is not enough. There are some banana trees around the antenna. Planning to mount the dish on the roof top this weekend. Still raining and cloudy. Yesterday I got following. But difficult to get the signal lock.

Tune First:
Confirm the Outernet signal using a DVB-S/S2 TV Tuner connected with your TV before connecting with the RPi. Then it is easy to align the dish.
Even in the heavy rain (not thunderstorm) I got following form ABS-2 with a rough dish alignment. :smile:

And TV channels also.
