Reception Report Santa Barbara, California
Finally closed a link with an 8"x4"x2" aluminum horn on SES-2. Maximum SNR was -10.75 dB, maximum Rssi was -80 dBM, and had frame lock.
Without the horn, I was not receiving sufficient signal to ever achieve frame lock
Additionally, the NOMADIX INC WiFi network at the hotel would not render my Dreamcatcher an IP address, nor report back in the Outernet Status system. The Dreamcatcher allowed me to connect to the WiFi, but I was never able to access the DC. I had to rewrite my SD card to get back to the Outernet Hotspot. Ken
