Description

some info about the rig I've been running over the summer. This was my first proper AP setup, and has on the whole been awesome. not always though, and so Im looking to improve some things now whilst we are under dense cloud cover :)

the best thing about this setup has been the ease of setting it up and getting it bang on alignment very quickly. i think its helped me to gather data more regularly ... still processing the 24hrs gathered on andromeda, and project pacman ultra narrowband somehow has reached circa 54hrs already. Seem to have gone a bit forest gump with that one :)

Mods incoming now are :
* Shifting to intel compute stick M3 , mounted up top. Acquisition SW runs totally on the rig, remote desktop over 5Ghz wifi. only power will be needed now, the USB line is not required.
* Mount connection via BT/Wifi - drop the DSUB cable and ST4 since its not used. This will get me down to power only to the mount.
+Power system change, to support the increased load of the compute stick (5V, 3.5A !), and give a path to running this rig off batteries at some point (prbly eBike battery assembly).
