2022.3a wsat wsat64_2022_3a.tgz setup_wsat_2022_3a.exe
  • Fixed location west
    Fixed no action after first sat-switch (Windows only)
2022.2b wsat wsat64_2022_2b.tgz wsat32_2022_2b.tgz setup_wsat_2022_2a.exe
  • Added option -log_rs
    this generates a file with amount of reed solomon errors
2022.2 wsat wsat64_2022_2.tgz wsat32_2022_2.tgz setup_wsat_2022_2.exe
  • Change decoder-mode taken over during record
2022.1 wsat wsat64_2022_1.tgz wsat32_2022_1.tgz setup_wsat_2022_1.exe
  • Added support NOAA2x (needs version 2022.01 of firmware)
  • Added search option UART port
2020.5d wsat wsat_2020_5d.tgz setup_wsat_2020_5d.exe
  • Fixed gamma setting
2020.5a wsat wsat_2020_5.tgz setup_wsat_2020_5.exe
  • Added "fly by", shifting live-picture while receiving
  • Fixed gamma for composites
2020.4 wsat wsat_2020_4.tgz setup_wsat_2020_4.exe
  • Added auto-luminance setting for 'Live'-tab
  • Added read/use list of places and positions for tracking location, using gpx file
  • Adapted UART: doesn't close/open at switch to next satellite (to prevent reset of attached Arduino)
  • Enhanced tracking accuracy; taken into account flattening earth
  • Corrected east/west-pass
  • Fixed problem with enabling fast USB without restart program
  • Secundary files (earthmap etc.) now searched in 3 locations instead of 1
  • Fixed wget: wget now taken from installation location
2020.3a wsat wsat_2020_3.tgz setup_wsat_2020_3a.exe
  • Added tracking of sun
  • missed part in preferences fixed
2020.2c wsat wsat_2020_2c.tgz setup_wsat_2020_2c.exe
  • Enhanced adding of gridlines / boundaries
2020.1b wsat wsat_2020_1.tgz setup_wsat_2020_1.exe
  • Added gamma for channel mapping (menu View->Channel_map)
  • 'Live' data: added auto-lum (see Record window)
  • switch to 'Live'-tab if record starts
  • switch to 'Viewer'-tab if file is opened
  • (a): fixed 'save as' (channel choice issue)
  • (b): fixed 'live' in viewer (if not fast ftd)
