I wasn’t getting very good results with my elevation set to 05° in the auto script, so I have now adjusted the max elevation back to 19° that way it should start to record it when the satellite is at 20° or higher.

I have also lowered the recording level for the dongle, this is done in another script.

I will now wait for the next pass and see what results I get.

Time of day may also play a part in this.

Todays weather.
Not too bad this scan from a 4 West pass.I usually get more interference from the houses
Edit. I presume that the 74 W Elevation helps.

Going to adjust the height in the scripts tomorrow. Hopefully it will make a difference.

25° or higher is definitely getting me better results.

Another hot one coming up.
I have not been getting many clean ones lately. This is a pretty clean one for a Western pass.
