Skylark for the third avatar of Outernet is up for download:
For people who have used Skylark earlier(with Dreamcatcher2, Lband), the only substantial change is the switch to a Kuband-specific tuner. Everything else should be entirely familiar.
If you have an sdcard with older versions of Skylark on it, its best to first format it completely (delete all partitions first) before burning Skylark 5.0.
The Tuner app now has a working “custom” tab. The image currently includes the correct beam configuration for the North American beam, but we may change the beam parameters over the next few days once we study the telemetry. If that happens, you will have to switch to the “custom” beam and manually enter the beamtype info. Any such change will be announced on the forum so please check regularly.
The content is currently same as the old L-band carousel, though it should come down significantly faster. After observation over the next few days, I should be able increase the frequency of weather updates, and bring back the twitter content request system, this time with more practical limits.
The first few DC3s are flying out to their destinations right now. I request the lucky first users to please checkin on this thread and report their observations/bugs/problems etc. Please also post your Tuner status screenshots.
Thank you for your support!
- Display-related development is still ongoing - so LCD function is currently merely cosmetic.
PS: Please do not use this Skylark version with DC2!
PPS: On a semi-related note - Armbian for DC3 is also available: Dreamcatcher3 Armbian. Note that the Armbian image cannot be used to receive Outernet.
Edit: for the few people who downloaded the image earlier, if you downloaded anything older than skylark-dc-1803111619, please re-download.
