Satellite feature brought me here

Post by KD2WWQ » Fri Sep 24, 2021 1:57 am

Hello!
Just joined the forum and just uploaded the 1801A firmware to use for satellites, really looking forward to the idea of how it will make it easier, but seem to be having trouble of plugging in the gps coordinates to designate me in NYC. I figured out the E/W toggle, but I'm not getting accurate predictions thinking I'm entering in something wrong. Soon I hope!!

Hi,

Don't forgot about the date and time (and Suspend mode, to not lose these infos on each power cycle).

Omgosh, the repeat keps upload after rebooting seems to solve the issue! Also, anyway to boost from 1w to 5w?

For anyone using Satellite mode, the should update to the latest public beta, because it has multiple bug fixes to this feature
