I have a 120cm offset dish that I use to listen QO-100 qsos for a while.
With Octagon LNB (unmodified) and a sdr receiver..
I can get qo-100 beacons around 59+18/20 db.. No problem on SSB
transmissions even without beacon lock function of sdr console
software...no wobbling on downconverting 10 ghz signal of QO-100
Anyway, tonight I gave a shot to dl0shf beacon if I can see any trace etc..
I have the delta of frequency drift of real frequency from qo-100 beacon
around 200-250 hz (sure with some little extra drift)
I set my frequency around 10.368.025
Set my dishes azimuth easly with help of moon light shadows
And set the elevation with help of a manual inclinometer.
Tried both horizontal and vertical but.. no sign of any signals on whole
Am I missing something? Any tricks welcome..
