    The tracking website has a tab for Oneweb satellites too.

    If you want the biggest selection of satellites to track, https://heavens-above.com/main.aspx is the place you want.

    SpaceX’s has filed for mobile applications for Starlink so the geofencing might not be so big of a deal in the near future. I think I posted a link either here or in the Space and Science thread..

    New router arrived and seems to be working. Here's the some of the cool extra stuff that only works with the Starlink router and app. The spikes are just me getting home from work and running a few speed tests. The latency spike I'm assuming is when I was switch routers.

    Connection and speeds have been consistently excellent since getting the proper Starlink router. I'll stop spamming the thread with my stats unless things change.

    Can’t speak for the others but I don’t consider your stats spamming. Sorry to say but you seem to be the only one here with an active Starlink service so it’s all appreciated .

    Here’s to hoping your 2 minutes of no connection drops to zero consistently .

    Thanks for posting your stuff.

    I agree. Keep 'em coming. I do, however, feel just a little bit jealous.... I was just out in the yard scoping out where I'm going to install Dishy once I have my hands on one.

    crazysccrmd - Have you had a chance to try your own router again, to see how the speeds look through that?

    I just figured the thread didn't need a screenshot of speeds every other day or so if they're all going to look about the same.

    Right now it's snowing pretty good with solid clouds at 700' and I'm getting 142mbps down and 13.4mbps up. Seems like weather really has no effect on the dish, including winds. The other day it was gusting close to 50mph and even though I could watch the dish wobbling on the mount post data didn't seem effected.

    @crazysccrmd , have you checked the satellite tracking site yet? If so, have you checked to see how true it is as to connectivity with a Starlink that’s on the horizon?

    I think the app shows a ‘connection’ with elevations just over 25 degrees. That seems a bit tenuous to me.

    Just found this when I checked the app after not having website fail to load. It was spot on accurate with the next satellite connection too.

    Screenshot_20210324-173440.jpg


    I checked the satellite tracking website and it looked like this:

    Screenshot_20210324-173531.jpg


    And then after reconnecting to Starlink it looked like this:

    Screenshot_20210324-173637.jpg



    No, I didn't post the pictures in the wrong order. I'm guessing there is a delay of a few minutes on where the satellites are displayed vs actual position.

    Still waiting on gear.. I'm interested in experiences users have had making/receiving wifi cellphone calls through the system.

    We do not have reliable phone service now.. neither cell, voip through HughesNet, or even a land line.

    When I'm at home my cell phone calls are done through wifi and I haven't noticed a problem. I might only make two or three calls a week though and I don't work from home or do any live video streaming stuff.

    Thanks for the report.. there's hope for a working phone! :thumbsup:

    This may be a stretch, but does anyone know if 911 service going through a Starlink wifi/sat. connection is doable and dependable? Our iphones are set up properly.

    Streaming the Bahrain Grand Prix in near perfect HD. You can see the satellite drop out, latency spike and download speed cut out.

    SOP.. Starlink has said there will be variations during the initial rollout.

    Thanks!

    "3. Starlink Services Will Provide Access to Emergency Services.
    ETCs are required to provide access to the emergency services provided by local
    government or other public safety organizations, such as 911 and enhanced 911, to the extent the
    local government in an ETC’s Service Areas has implemented 911 or enhanced 911 systems."

    There's a way to real-time test one's connection to 911.. which I will do. This may not seem like a priority to most, but it is to me. Thanks! :thumbsup:
