This website describes the first preview of the satellite tracking interface in version 3 of the SDR-Radio.com SDR software. The satellite tracking provides a simple yet powerful support for all satellites. A minimum knowledge of satellite theory and operation is required to use this software. When you start it for the first time it is ready to be used.
All the features you expect are included:
- Doppler frequency correction,
- Rotator support,
As well as the above this software can control an external radio used for transmitting, so a full satellite station could be:
- Receive: Airspy, SDRplay, ...
- Transmit: FT-991, IC-706, ...
With receiver and transmitter fully controlled by this software.
Note: this software has been rewritten since the version 2 release to use Direct2D (DirectX) hardware-accelerated graphics, also the interface has been greatly simplified without losing any of the features which were part of the previous release. As a result the processing is much faster and uses considerably fewer resources.
Please remember: this is only a preview - feedback is very welcome.
