Now today, I am in Lecce, Italy, (Lat 40.3N Long 18.17E Elevation 42.8 Mag 166.2). Clear sunny sky on top of hotel with great view of horizon, and I can't close a link. Time is 1415 UTC (Mid-afternoon) Friday 11 Mar. Signal levels are on order of -108 dBm, but SNRs are neg with no lock. I am running on a fully charged Lipo battery (as I usually do when I take a casual look-see) - - CHIP working fine, LNA lit up as usual.
Several reboots of Lantern, but no change. All I can think is RFI must be causing the problem. I'll pursue that with SDR #. Ken
