Re: Satellite tracking 'flip' mode?

Ideally the flip mode would be user enabled/disabled independent of the end point setting. Other programs like MacDoppler (earlier version) automatically initiated flip when the elevation rotor setting was set as 180 degrees and could not be disabled unless the setting was reversed to 90 degrees. If this function is enabled within SDR console a user checkbox could allow to enable or disable it and the elevation setting can be left at 180 for any particular satellite path.

Also, a word of caution, unless carefully planned and executed at the antenna, cables must have enough slack to accommodate both...full 360 or more azimuth and 180 elevation flip mode. Speaking based on bad (destructive) experience.

Thanks Simon, looking forward to it.
