Nooelec GOES Weather Satellite RTL-SDR Bundle



  • Jim Minter

    Great guide!  One important note: in my location, DishPointer indicated a high LNB skew angle was necessary for both GOES16 and GOES17.  Following the guide verbatim to mount the antenna horizontally, I couldn't get a high quality signal at all.  I re-attached the antenna/boom rotated 45 degrees to the L plate, i.e. putting the 4 longer bolts through the other four holes in the L plate, and immediately got a good signal.

    I recommend updating the guide to instruct people to check the LNB skew angle before assembly, explain if a clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation is required, and factor this in at the point of attaching the L plate to the antenna/boom.

    Thanks for a great product.

    Great point Jim, we will pass it on and update the guide accordingly :)  I'm glad you got things up and running!
