OpenBox X5 on a 1 meter motorized dish.
And now a 10 foot "C" band dish.

Custom built PC
My Location
Deep in the Boonies in the central Sierra Nevada mountains of California.
OK after playing around a bit I have found the best settings (at my end) for this stuff.

For the audio, it is, RECORDING= 1ch, 16 bit, 22050 Hz (AM radio quality)...For the PLAYBACK= 1ch, 16 bit, 22050HZ (AM radio quality)

For WXtoImg, in the RECORDING options, the sample rate is set to, 22050.

This is the best shot from last night with these settings, looks to be the best for this software.

FWIW I use a mixture of Home Premium win7 32bit & win7 64bit on my assorted computers, but mainly 64 bit on the sdr computers.

If anyone is interested in how to put the text onto the pic its in wxtoimg options - text options.

Capture.JPG

I increased the font size in line 2 to 16 otherwise its not readable & put my location in as 2 lines at the bottom.

You can change to font if you wish but I rather like that "Star Trek" style.

Very useful that.I normally save scans with the MEL and LONG label.I will be usefull to have some satellite info on the image.It would be nice to get the longitude on there as well .Some more settings to play with.I inserted the MEL and LONG before the scan

I am getting some good scans lately.I altered the points from 26 to 30 on this scan.Lots of fun to be had trying different settings.Perhaps red text will show up better.

A nice long image from this morning - things are sooo much better since I discovered a loose cable in the antenna run!
