Hello from South Africa,
Received my DIY kit yesterday evening.
Connecting it all up according to the guide was fairly simple.
The first thing that I noticed was that the SDR gets VERY hot. I've seen other postings that make reference to this running hot but it is nothing like my other SDR dongles ...
Also, the guide and various postings refer to a GREEN LED on the LNA. My LNA has a red LED. I assume that it is correct - maybe just a different version of hardware but because of the hot running of the SDR I am a bit concerned.
Then, the other thing ,,, it is very difficult to connect to the Outernet hotspot. By that I mean that the SSID is visible but it only accepts 1 in 20 attempts to connect to it.
Using the Android WiFi analyser it looks like the CHIP/SDR/LNA creates a very noisy RF environment which impacts on the performance of other WiFi access points in the area.
The satellite reception appears ok with a SNR of 7db and files are definitely coming down.
Any feedback would be welcome.
p.s. I had to shut off the CHIP/SDR/LNA in order to connect to my wifi to send this
