  1. The up-dates look very good and should make operation simpler for many to operate.

    I have one question, relating to using the BATC spectrum on the control webpage, how can one disable this feature even when on-line? One may think that it is a good thing, but, when I use Rob’s QO-100 Quicktune to send messages to Minitiouner or Longmynd this means I have to have two instances of network connections to the BATC wb server so using more bandwidth then really necessary. So the option to disable this feature for selecting the transmit side could be useful. There is still the drop down box to select transmit frequencies or the custom option.

    It would also be beneficial if transmitting on other bands such as 23cms and 70cms DATV to switch it off.

    Hope I have not missed such as tick box.

    1. Thank you for your words of encouraging.
      You didn’t miss anything. There is no spectrum disabling feature in this 2308 Alpha version yet, but I’m taking your proposal for a next evolution.
      We are studying the possibility to directly drive the minitiouner from the spectrum of the BATC. That will surely interest you. I take this opportunity to thank again AMSAT-UK and BATC for the digitization and streaming of the wideband transponder profile. It is thanks to their station, its investment and its maintenance that we can collaborate on new very interesting projects.

      Thanks Adrian for the ideas

  2. Driving multiple receivers such as Minitiouner or Longmynd could be a good idea, I drive two separate receivers on my own system. But again thinking along the same lines of it could need to be disabled when not operating on QO-100.

    All I can do is thank all the developers of the Pluto system for DATV.

  3. why not get spectrum from pluto rx port instead of using internet traffic??
    connect pluto rx and minituoner together to same dish and you can use both together … so why not also use pluto rx port to get spectrum?? (no internet needed then)
