Receiving Qatar Oscar 100 satellite with SDR Console

La dérive de fréquences visualisée sous Excel

In addition to the stabilization feature itself, the SDR Console software also allows (and as an accessory, it is true) to export the correction points that the software has bring. So we will be able to see the evolutions of frequency that the LNB has “caused ” to the software….

To accomplish this,

  1. Click on the button that represents the floppy disk.
  2. Choose the output format of the file (here Tabulations separator)

  3. Save your file in the desired location on your computer

  4. Click on Open file to open the file directly through your usual spreadsheet software

  5. If you use Excel, you will find a sheet, in which you can find up to 10,000 samples.
  6. We can quickly create a graph to represent the frequency evolution generated by the LNB oscillator. First, we need to reconstruct the data under two columns. Select column A (click on the letter A)

  7. In Office Excel 2010 (or newer), select Data and then Convert. Choose the data type Delimited. Then check Tabulation, and click Finish. This creates two columns in the Excel table.

Now select your two columns with the Time and Offset headers. Click on Insert, and choose a line graph template. The result is displayed and shows the frequency correction work performed by the SDR Console software.

    Hello,
    great paper and well done for those who have not yet installed the “synchro” !!!! watch out for one thing, the head shift…which is not the same for everyone ! for my part I have to go in 9,749,852 to get the right adjustment…. 73 Maurice F6CIU

  9. Bonjour et merci pour ce superbe article que je vais mettre en œuvre.

    Une question reste en suspend:
    quel est le type de connecteur sur la Clé USB de réception TV TNT ?
    C’est pour commander le bon raccord entre la clé et le T-Bias.

    Merci

    Hello and thank you for this great article that I will implement.

    One question is still pending:
    what is the type of connector on the USB stick for DVB-T TV reception?
    This is to order the right connection between the key and the T-Bias.

    Thank you

    1. Merci Stéphane pour l’intérêt porté à mon blog.
      Sur le modèle de clé TNT en photo, il doit s’agir d’un connecteur MCX femelle. Je vous laisse vérifier, cela pourrait varier en fonction du modèle.
      Il existe des adaptateurs, tel celui-ci : MCX mâle / Fiche F femelle ou si vous préférez MCX mâle / Fiche BNC femelle

      Espérant avoir répondu, souhaitant un bon montage de votre station de réception de QO 100 !
      Christian

      Thank you Stéphane for your interest in my blog.
      On the TNT key model in the photo, it must be a female MCX connector. I let you check, it could vary depending on the model.
      There are adapters, such as this one: MCX male / F female plug or if you prefer MCX male / BNC female plug

      Hoping to have answered, wishing a good assembly of the QO 100 receiving station!
      Christian
