Wow. What a fickle little paradigm. Same spot I was getting Signal State 3 last night, getting 0 today. Same exactly as I have antenna in fixed position to reduce variables. Stretched battery away to see if any impact (using cable that came with batt pack ordered in kit)- no difference. Changed cable and swapped in big Ventev 2.1 Watt pack (powers big iPad Pro) no difference. RF plumbing is secure. Same signal variations I originally saw where SNR is as negative as it is positive every couple of seconds.. Though it's mildly cloudy, where as last night it was clear sky and I got to SS3 in same fixed position. But my understanding is that L-Band handles clouds just fine, generally and from same location I get GPS lock with no issues at all. We have no interfering sources around us, live out in the country.
I'm stumped at this point. Ordered a pigtail so I can hook up an RF Space antenna, but am also feeling like I'm one step away from throwing up my hands.
The CHIP did shut down once again outside, as well but this time came right back where as it needed 10-15 min to come back before (inside).
