Did you use the MITE3  app? If so, any comments/suggestions?

Thanks.

Additional info....

We were able to achieve a satellite signal ratio of ~ 8.06  which allowed a 25.9 MB Download speed and Upload of 4.19 MB (fairly respectable rate).

The software version on the satellite is UT_3.7.3.10.9.  The DOCC indicated it was the most recent version.

I used SatFinder. Frederic used the app provided by the Red Cross. They both seemed to work fine.  Biggest problem is getting the tripod level.
Adjusting the legs is quite clunky.

In order to use the Mite3 app you would need a wifi connection to the modem. We don't have any wifi routers in the kit or spares in chapter right now. Hopefully it's something we can add in the future. Next time you deploy the ViaSat I may bring a spare one to see how the app works.

Yes— the MITe iPhone app by ViaSat was what they recommended at the Austin HOT. 

Fredric had it installed on his phone already.

We did not. Our objective was to simply set up the dish and update software as needed.

Fredric Raab
 

At the Austin HOT, we simply used the MITe app to obtain the azimuth and elevation.   But it has other functions that require a WiFi connections, which we did not cover in class.

I thought of this after I left the RC on Saturday.  Next month, we should connect a WiFi access point and explore.  I found the attached documentation for MITe on the Internet.

Fredric
