Station Signal Loss?

Post by Grimers » Sat Aug 25, 2018 10:48 am

Hi guys,

Does anyone have any idea on what happened to my data last night (please see below image)? I've tried to reload the data, but the same issue occurs. I assume it's due to a loss in signal between the ISS and console. I replaced the ISS battery a few weeks ago, so I don't think it's that (there's no low battery warning showing on the console).


What would potentially need replacing/fixing?

How far away is the iss to your console?

Is the console in the best possible place for signal reception?

Following on from Toxic’s reply I know the VP2 has software that shows the quality of the signal and how many successful and missed connections. Check the manual for details on how to display them.
