SatBBC and UsedSatcom.com is the same company and owner.

You may be surprised to find that I am no longer with Satbbc, and so I wanted to update you about our new company.

I had to leave because of a difference regarding ethics and I decided to leave their employment.

While I was employed I was the salesrep responsible for 95% of the purchases and sales and I hope that you were satisfied with my efforts there, and I can offer those same skills through, Satcom Resellers Inc.

2  Anything else / General and other topics / VSAT training in Douala, May 22nd to 26th
 on: Apr 19th, 2017 at 1:15pm 
Started by Oasis Networks | Post by Oasis Networks  
Dears,

I am planning to travel to Douala, Cameroon, to provide VSAT training. The dates will be between 22nd to 26th, and is intended for engineers with practical background.
Basically, we are going to cover the following topics:
- Theoretical background about electromagnetic waves, polarity, frequency, the geostationary satellite system, modulation, FEC, some discussions about access methods and different standards and different types of networks and more.
- Practical aspects of the Field Engineering work: Consideration where to locate the dish, cable run work, antenna foundations, work planning and more.
- Work methods, Oasis work procedures, code of conducts, safety and health consideration, working with Oasis portals (training, project and future overall platform).
- Practical part on the field, installation, troubleshooting scenarios and flowcharts.
- Q&A etc.

Cost of the curse is $700 per person, each needs to take care of the logistics though we will probably manage to organize better price at one of the hotels near the training location.

Certificates of Oasis training will be provided as well.

At the moment looks like we have only 5 available seats left. I am planning another training in Uganda toward September, and probably another one in DRC or CAR around December or Jan.

For more details, please contact me by email.

Kind Regards,
Nimrod

Hey guys, happy to be here.

I need some suggestions about the connection of my TP-Link WR840N and the Surfbeam2.

At the moment i connect through the WAN Port of the TP, but i'm just wondering if i could improve the speed if i use it as an access point.

Unfortunatly i couldn't get it working.

Our Surfbeam2 is working with the following specs.

The TP-Link is working with this specs

Could anybody advise me a good working config to get this c**p working?

 on: Apr 13th, 2017 at 11:22am

I agree it is beginning to look like a beacon receiver hardware fault.

Some suggestions.

. is the monitor port level supposed to be -20 dB relative to the main input? The beacon receiver manual should tell you.  -20 dB might well be correct, but alternatives like -10 dB or 0 dB difference are possible.
. is the input B socket damaged? If the center pin of the plug is too long it can break the socket to printed circuit board connection inside.
. are you using a 50 ohm plug into a 75 ohm socket, or vice versa.
. is DC power present on the cable.
. why was input B ever used?   Was input A faulty or damaged a long time ago? Try using input A instead of input B.
. check the configuration of the beacon receiver, e.g. bandwidth, search range. It may have lost lock on the signal due to frequency drift if the frequency tracking function was turned off or not wide enough.
. the beacon receiver may have more detailed fault/alarm diagnostics. Are its power supply voltages all correct?.
. try applying a CW test signal direct to the beacon receiver, inputs A and B.
. connect the beacon receiver direct to a point nearer the LNB output.

Your spectrum pictures have the resolution bandwidth at 300 kHz. Try 30 kHz or 3 kHz RBW.  The 'beacon' may be a central CW carrier with telemetry sidebands or just a clean unmodulated CW carrier. This might affect how the beacon receiver is intended to work. It needs to lock to the central CW carrier using a narrow bandwidth or measure the entire signal using a wider bandwidth.

Maybe contact the beacon receiver manufacturer ?

Hi,

No loose connections. Beacon Carrier appears at the input cable of Beacon Receiver when connecting with Spectrum (Ref Attached).

Beacon Frequency is 1201.00 MHz
No Intermittent terminations.
Receiver Hard Rebooted.
Input B is configured with the cable plugged into socket B.
Beacon Receiver has frequency tracking capability.
No drift is observed as Data Traffic is still operational with same LNB.
Its External PLL LNB.
10MHz supply is working.

Snaps attached when input cable directly connected with spectrum, it showing the beacon carrier. Second, spectrum connected with Receiver's Monitoring port where carrier appears too low. Any idea of possible causes? Isn't it a hardware failure? Your guidance will be highly appreciated.

Any ideas for the future welcome.

Is YaBB perl slow, dated and old fashioned ?

Is the satsig.net forum any good on mobile device screen sizes ?

What if the forum is 'statified' and turned into a set of static html archive pages.

If a new forum is started, what software system is suggested ?

Replies here or by email to me eric@satsig.net

Best regards, Eric.

Check for loose connections on cables from L band splitter to tracking receiver input.

Look with spectrum analyser on the cable end at the beacon receiver for any signals. What is the exact frequency of the beacon ?

If you get it working waggle all the cable connectors to try and identify any intermittent terminations.

Check configuration of beacon receiver. Cycle the power. Is input B configured, with cable input plugged to socket A ?
Does the beacon receiver have a frequency tracking capability ?  How wide will this go ?  Has the LNB local oscillator drifted too far ?  Are you using an internal or external PLL type LNB ? Is it locked ? Is the 10 MHz supply working ?
