High number of "Missed Packets"

Postby ki4swb » Fri Nov 22, 2013 4:21 pm

Having run the Dashboard for a few good passes now I've noticed that the "Missed" Packets count is close to or higher than the "Packets Decoded" number. As an example, on a pass just completed it was 50/56. FCD sound setting is at 1and the auto tune locks on to a good signal. I tinkered with some of the gain settings on the FCD with no conclusions or should I be doing that at all?

Thanks.

My numbers were 763/12393 until I restarted dashboard and now they are 0/0 - I think it is based on the sequence number delta and how long you have been running the program - I miss most packets because the satellite is only visible for about an hour or so a day from here.

That's a good thought, I've been starting and stopping the app. My assumption was that missed packets are an indication of errors... might be wrong about that. Perhaps someone from the dev team can clarify what that number means.
