10GHz band monitor
In my summer QTH in JO55RT i have installed a system which can monitor the 10GHz band via an remote WEB connection. The antenna is a 60cm dish pointing towards south-West (270deg). The direction was choosen to be able to monitor OZ9SHF on 10368.900MHz, it is nearly always hearable and with rainy conditions it is possible to hear OZ7IGY on 10368.930, occasionally other becons can also be heard, or you can listen for your own signals.The QTH is appx. 100m ASL, close to the coast in west seeland.
To use the system you must install SDR console V3 from https://www.sdr-radio.com/download . When the program is installed you must configure the system. From select radio menu choose <->Server / Definitions / search-V3 server /SDRSpace.com. Now a list of stations available should be vissible:
Select OZ2TG 10GHZ monitor, and save the selected radio . When you start the SDR program with this radio select bandwith=250KHz before pressing start, if not the sound will not be good. Set the frequency arround 618.771MHz to monitor OZ9SHF as shown in this example:
The receive frequency is comming from The LNB donconverting using a LO of 9750MHz (PLL locked to a cheap xtal=frequency drift may occur). In this exampe OZ9SHF at 10368.900-9750=618.900 , but is on 618.771 right now, and that will change. The system will operate 24/7 during the winter months as a trial. Reports are wellcome.
