I've just received the DYI kit and have experienced the following while connecting to Alphasat:
- the SDR board is the new one (SDRx Rev1v06.1)
- if I connect the LNA board, I will get no signal above SNR 0.2
- without the LNA Board, I get something between SNR 1.75 and 3.21
My question is:
1) should I still connect the little LNA board to the new SDR board ?
2) besides the CHIP having a micro-USB power plug, the SDR board also has a micro-USB plug ? Should I apply power to both of them (right now, the SDR board is powered through the CHIP USB connector).
Thanks for your input.
