SatNOGS successfully tracking

There have been a few teething issues that needed ironing out with the SatNOGS project. An issue with the client software was proving a little hard to track down but eventually resolved with ownership and ability to ready from root owned files looked like it was the culprit. After a fresh Jessie install was done on the Raspberry Pi and a rebuild of the new software both the client and Kal worked (after a chmod & chown) . The only thing left to do was schedule an observation without antenna’s to confirm it would track.

Good News!

The rotator followed the ISS as hoped, so I happy to report the system is ready for tidying up, the electronics being boxed up and it being sited at the museum.
