Picking up RadFxSat Fox 1B on her first pass over Cornwall, FM on 145.960 adjusted for Doppler. The initial TLE data is pretty accurate. Receiver is the Airspy HF+, antenna general log periodic for 130 MHz to 1.3 GHz.

Here's a screenshot of the version 3 Analyser slowly taking shape. This is a zoomed processing on 963kHz taken from an overnight recording, we see many medium wave (MW) carriers present.
Data processing at 1,343 megabytes / second from a NVMe SSD card.
Listening to pirates on FLTSAT-8 with the HF+. Found the FLTSAT 8 TLE data on the internet, added it and let the software point the log periodic at the satellite. First time I've ever listened to the pirates - not very entertaining if truth be told.
Here are pictures of the SDR-Radio.com offcie / playroom / shack.
Here's an example of the HF+ receiving the NOAA 18 APT weather satellite, the antenna is a log periodic covering 130 MHz to 1.3 GHz. The HF+ is very sensitive and very quiet - no mixer products, spurs, or artifacts at all.
Here's an image from NOAA 18 but a moch lower angle - 13 degrees. You see noise on the image, but nethertheless an excellent copy.
My second Airspy HF+ arrived today fresh from the production run, below are a couple of screenshots from BBC Radio Cornwall on 103.9 MHz. In the main photo you see the packaging!
Well worth waiting for, no-one will be disappointed.
The original CW Skimmer implementation missed an importrant feature, namely:

After a few hours' coding it's now OK.
This is what I want for Christmas. 1kW of pure loveliness, ideal for my SDR transceivers.

The new website (that's this one) is almost ready - still testing but looking good. Sadly the old skins I used on DNN8 were deemed to not be secure, the company I purchased them from did nothing about this, so I bought news skines from Mandeeps.com and a new DNN system with DNN 9 was installed on a big DoDaddy farm.
Please have a look through the pages and report any problems.
Thanks - Simon
