m10 Replacement?

0 votes
Hello.

I am just looking for a modem that can reliably send/receive e-mails for a couple weeks, and it has to work in the Edmonton Alberta (Canada) area.

I purchased the m10 dev kit and it just doesn't look like it is close to working. I've even driven out into a field and put it on top of my car (though obviously that's a shit ground), to no avail.

I'm in Calgary now (not that it should matter where I am with satellites RIGHT overhead), and I can't get better than -110 dB (reading from the Dashboard utility).

Satellite
Gateway
Packet Error
Doppler shift
SNR

all show up with green checkmarks, though of course I never get even two solid 'signal bars' for more than a second.

This really seemed like an out-of-the-box solution, but I can't get one message through.

Any ideas?

Antenna?

Well, if you've got messages going at -98 dB, then that's good news for me! Im going antenna shopping right now.

The Digi guy on the phone said I needed -60, which seemed a little too big a gap.

Thanks!
