Reception Report from Ragusa, Sicily, Italy


Reception here in Ragusa, Sicily, (Lat 36 deg 55.6’ N Long 14 deg 44’ E) at 0800 local (0700 UTC) is stronger than other locations with an SNR of 9.58 dB and stronger Rssi of -113,75 dBm.

I found a location with an unobstructed sky view on top of the hotel outside of WiFi range so went HotSpot mode. Ken


The travels of this reciever remind me of the globe-trotting garden gnome from Amelie :smiley:


I’m kind of amazed by the wear and tear that the Alpha Lantern has stood up to. It was never meant to be more than a barely functional prototype.


You’re 100 % right. Once, it fell off a balcony from one floor above the ground - - I picked it up and had to plug everything back into the various sockets and it worked just fine. :heart_eyes:
Those 10 screws really work!



Next report will show the effects of Mt Etna’s eruption on satellite signal. Ken
